After getting a win in Week 1 against UConn on the road, the Wolfpack has its most daunting challenge of the non-conference schedule this Saturday: Notre Dame. NC State holds a 1-2 record against the Fighting Irish, so can the Pack get another win or will Notre Dame even the head-to-head record?

Tim Prister of Irish Illustrated joins Cory Smith to discuss the matchup on the Pregame Podcast. What do we truly know about the Irish after two games? Will Sam Hartman finally get his first win in Carter-Finley Stadium? How different is the offense around Hartman at Notre Dame? Where does the defense stand heading into Week 2 of the season? Get all that and a scoring prediction on this week's episode!
