‘Revenge’ Game: NC State at Clemson

Last season NC State did something it had not done in close to a decade.

The Wolfpack downed Clemson in double-overtime giving Dave Doeren his first ever win over the Tigers and NC State it’s first win in the series since 2011.

It’s a series Clemson has dominated over the years, with the Tigers owning a 59-29-1 mark all-time.

With NC State picking up the victory last season, CBS Sports has this year’s matchup listed among its biggest revenge games of 2022, ranking it No. 4 on the list.

The second of three losses in Clemson’s “down year” of 10-3 in 2021, NC State was able to make it clear early in the season that the ACC was wide open with the Wolfpack’s 27-21 double overtime thriller. The Tigers’ sterling reputation as the kings of the conference was already shaky after totaling just two offensive touchdowns in its first two games against FBS opponents, and NC State was poised for a breakthrough in the series after a couple close calls across an eight-game losing streak. Now Clemson’s taking aim at the Wolfpack and the rest of the conference as they look to make a return to the ACC Championship Game and the College Football Playoff, but neither of those goals are going to be as feasible if the Tigers don’t get revenge against the Wolfpack in early October.

Last year’s game was played in Raleigh. This year, the Wolfpack have to travel to Death Valley, where only Pitt has been able to pull of a win in the past six seasons. The last time NC State won in Clemson? You have to go all the way back to 2002.
