NC State is set to host a critical matchup against Boston College this coming weekend for a number of reasons. Not only will it be Senior Day for 30 players, but it's a chance to make history with a 17th straight win at home for the Wolfpack.

All of that has somewhat overshadowed the opponent this week, but AJ Black of Eagle Insider joins Cory Smith this week to break the game down. Black discusses the potential for Emmett Morehead at quarterback, the struggles on the ground, dynamic play of Zay Flowers, the Eagles' defense and his prediction for Saturday's showdown.

Welcome to the first episode of the Clutch Cast with Kai Crutchfield! For those who don't know, the podcast name is a play on Kai's nickname, "Clutchfield," for her play in big games throughout her career. Kai will bring weekly updates and her own thoughts for both men's and women's basketball throughout the season on this podcast!

In this introduction episode, Kai explains her vision for the show and gives some background on her own career in the first segment. She's then joined by Pack Pride Editor and show producer Cory Smith to hand out some preseason awards for both the men's and women's teams!
