NC State travels to Virginia for the ACC opener on Friday night for what is sure to be an emotional night for several players and coaches involved. But while the headlines are all about the return of Brennan Armstrong, Robert Anae and Garett Tujague to Scott Stadium, there is still a football game to be played between NC State and Virginia.

Jacquie Franciulli of Wahoos247 joins us to discuss the matchup, her expectations for Armstrong, where the UVA offense stands, injury concerns with multiple defensive players out and gives her prediction. Listen to the full podcast in less than 30 minutes to get a complete preview of the matchup!
