Dave Doeren confirms: NC State will play in 2020 bowl game

While meeting with reporters amidst NC State’s Early Signing Day festivities, head coach Dave Doeren stated that his team plans to play in a bowl game.

So far, six ACC teams have elected to opt out of bowl game participation following the 2020 regular season: Boston College, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Louisville.

NC State finished the 2020 regular season with a record of 8-3; the Wolfpack won a program record seven ACC games this season, too.

A bowl game victory would give NC State nine wins this season, for the third time under Doeren. Projections are a little scattered at the moment, but NC State could head to Charlotte for the Duke’s Mayo Bowl (Dec. 30) or in Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl (Jan. 2).
