The Miami Hurricanes (3-1) look to improve to 3-0 in ACC play on Saturday, as they play host to the North Carolina State Wolfpack (3-1) -- who will be playing in their first ACC game of the season.

The Hurricanes will certainly look to carry the momentum over from last Saturday's thrilling 42-36 overtime win over Georgia Tech. Miami scored the final 23 points against Georgia Tech, after scoring the game's first 19.

Quarterback Stephen Morris will look to improve on a solid performance. Morris was 31-of-52 passing against the Yellow Jackets, good for 436 yards and two touchdowns.

N.C. State has won three consecutive games after dropping their season-opening contest to Tennessee, 35-21. The Wolfpack rebounded with wins over Connecticut, South Alabama and the Citadel. While wins are wins, none of those three schools constitute quality opponents.

The Hurricanes enter the game as three-point favorites over the Wolfpack.

Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m. ET. Televised coverage can be found on ESPNU, and WatchESPN.
