The Pack has an opportunity to make a big statement early in the Gottfried era with a home game against #1 ranked Syracuse. To get you ready for the game, check out two of State's greatest wins in RBC Center history.

Go Pack! Beat Syracuse!
As the Texas game proved that there's a new attitude in Raleigh, losses to Indiana and Stanford proved State still has a long way to go. The Pack blew second half leads in each game, becoming rattled down the stretch against two solid opponents. State simply has to learn how to win. A program that has been entrenched in mediocrity, specializing in finding new ways to lose games, can't be fixed overnight. What's important this year for State is to develop good habits and begin to understand what it takes to win consistently.
