RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina State didn't play well in its first road game under new coach Dave Doeren. The Wolfpack could get a boost for Saturday's home game against Syracuse if starting quarterback Brandon Mitchell is healthy enough to play.
Mitchell lasted three series in the opener before suffering a broken left foot that required surgery. But the Arkansas graduate transfer has been working his way back in practice and is listed as questionable for the Wolfpack (3-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who lost for the sixth straight time at Wake Forest last week.
Syracuse (2-3, 0-1) is coming off a 49-14 home loss to No. 3 Clemson, the program's first ACC game.
Now Syracuse is preparing for its first ACC road game in the first meeting between the schools since 1998.
