In a release this morning, NC State Director of Athletics Debbie Yow announced the addition of 15 games to their future football schedules.
The additions include a home-and-home series with Marshall and single home games against Georgia State, Old Dominion, Ball State, Notre Dame, and nine FCS opponents.
The NC State Wolfpack will host the Marshall Thundering Herd at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh on Sept. 9, 2017. The Wolfpack will then travel to face the Herd at Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington on Sept. 22, 2018.
NC State and Marshall have met three times previously, all in Raleigh, and the Wolfpack won each game.
Georgia State is scheduled to visit Raleigh on Sept. 8, 2018. The contest will be the first ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
In 2019, the Ball State Cardinals of the MAC will also make the trek to Raleigh to take on the Wolfpack for the first time ever.
NC State and Old Dominion previously announced a home-and-home football series for 2014 and 2015, but today a third game was added. The Wolfpack will host the Monarchs on Sept. 17, 2016.
Under the ACC’s agreement with Notre Dame, the Wolfpack are slated to host the Irish on Oct. 8, 2016 and visit South Bend in 2017. Yow announced today that Notre Dame will return to Carter-Finley Stadium in 2022.
NC State also announced future games against eight FCS opponents: Eastern Kentucky (2015), William & Mary (2016), Furman (2017 & 2021), James Madison (2018), Western Carolina (2019 & 2024), Delaware (2020), and Charleston Southern (2022).
In the release today, Debbie Yow stated that NC State’s non-conference schedule will continue to consist of “one Power 5 conference team, two FBS opponents from among the American, C-USA, MAC, Sunbelt and WAC, and one FCS opponent.”
Although their future schedules are filling up, NC State will listen to any offers for neutral-site matchups.
“We continue to consider opportunities in Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and other markets for the right combination of opponent, date, television exposure and revenue,” said Yow.
