The 2020 football season is just over one month away, but NC State is still not sure who to prepare for in its season opener. Following the ACC shifting the schedule to conference-only with a plus-one model, Michael and Cory break down the matchups and offer their thoughts on the changes.

Did NC State's schedule get easier or tougher? What are the best new matchups on the 2020 schedule? Will fans be allowed in the stadium? Will there even be a season after these drastic changes?
