NC State vs. Notre Dame 2017 live stream

The sixth straight victory by Brian Kelly's team, now 7-1, avenged a 10-3 loss at N.C. State past year in windy and rainy conditions caused by Hurricane Matthew that was the low point of a 4-8 campaign.

After notching three critical pass break-ups in the first half, Love was back at it in the second, disrupting the Wolfpack's opening drive with his second interception return for a touchdown of the season.

On a day in which he surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the fewest carries (110) in school history, Adams tacked on a 77-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that gave the Irish their 35-14 lead. Adams is now averaging a whopping 9.2 yards per carry and looks like one of the best running backs in all of college football.

A week ago, Adams jumped into the Heisman conversation with a 191-yard three-touchdown performance against USC. The scoring pass to Smythe came after Germaine Pratt of N.C. State fell on a blocked Irish punt to put the Wolfpack up 7-0. Wimbush's 3-yard TD run in the second quarter was his 11th rushing TD of the season, the most by a quarterback in a season at Notre Dame.

The NCAA record is 379, which also was set by an NC State quarterback, Russell Wilson in 2008-09.

Semi-professional and World War II team Great Lakes was coached by the legendary Paul Brown. The Irish toppled No. 11 USC this October 21, and now the No. 14 Wolfpack.

Notre Dame limited North Carolina State to 89 yards total offense in the second half, but the game-changing event occurred on the Wolfpack's first possession of the second half.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Notre Dame is favored at home in this game, as the Fighting Irish are getting odds of -6.5 points against the Wolfpack.

Love's 69-yard return behind a convey of his defensive mates with 12:05 left in the third quarter ended N.C. State quarterback Ryan Finley's streak of consecutive passes without throwing an interception at 339.

The Fighting Irish are 6-1, while the Wolfpack is 6-1.

N.C. State suffered a big blow to its offense when Hines, who had rushed over 100 yards in the previous three games, sustained an ankle injury on the kickoff following Notre Dame's first touchdown of the game.

However, we are looking at cumulative effect throughout the year.

Notre Dame's success is due to star running back Josh Adams.

As for my prediction, I have to side with Notre Dame. "They continually come out with energy and a mindset to get after the opponent". We don't talk about winning.

"I've been up there several times to watch them play when I was young, and when I was a graduate assistant at USC we played in the rivalry game". "We're physically stronger, so mentally we've established a mindset as to how we play".

"Generally when you have a punt blocked, it's nearly deflating", Kelly said. Our guys never flinched.

"That's hard to build".

One-loss Notre Dame has looked better and better as the season wears on, and while NC State is a good team, home-field advantage could swing what looks to be a close game.
