RALEIGH, NC – It’s a border battle that’s been on a break. But Saturday, the Virginia-NC State rivalry resumes, and it will be broadcast LIVE on WGNT in Hampton Roads.

Virginia (3-1 overall, 1-0 ACC) travels to Carter-Finley Stadium for its first contest with the Wolfpack (3-0 overall, 0-0 ACC) since invading Carter-Finley Stadium in 2012, a 33-6 Cavalier victory. Kickoff is set for 12:20 p.m.

FIVE TOP STORYLINES

• Virginia makes the trip to Raleigh for the first time since 2012 and only the third time since the 2003 meeting.
• UVA is coming off an ACC win over Louisville, 27-3, marking the first time the Cavaliers have held an ACC team without a touchdown since winning at Maryland, 20-9, on Oct. 17, 2009.  It was also the first time Louisville was held without a touchdown in the regular season since 2010 against Pitt.
