The North Carolina State Wolfpack are also unbeaten and will play their fourth straight home game.

Ralston Turner is the third North Carolina State player averaging double-digit points and Lennard Freeman leads the Wolfpack with 9.3 rebounds. North Carolina State’s defense has been absolutely terrific early on, holding teams to just 24.6 percent shooting from three and forcing nearly 13 turnovers. NC State is also averaging 52 rebounds, making the Wolfpack one of the more impressive teams early in the season.
The Bulls are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Wolfpack are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
The South Florida Bulls are playing too well to pass up this many points. North Carolina State is playing well also, but double digits is asking a bit much in my eyes.
