The Wolfpack, who will have home-field advantage in Charlotte, have shown their grit this season when they easily could have packed it in and sent head coach Tom O'Brien home with a pink slip. Instead, N.C. State will be making its third bowl appearance in four seasons under O’Brien despite its inconsistency this fall. A fifth straight win over rival North Carolina was followed up by a bad loss to Boston College, but the team rebounded nicely in a mauling of Clemson before coming back from a 27-point deficit to Maryland late in the third quarter to become bowl eligible in one of the biggest comebacks in school history. This will be the second time the Wolfpack will be playing in Charlotte for a bowl game, as they defeated South Florida in the 2005 Meineke Car Care Bowl.
