RALEIGH — N.C. State is enjoying a dream football season, but reality could be a kick-off away. Florida State returns to Carter-Finley Stadium on Saturday. The lucky Wolfpack fans who are going to the game want to see a 1998 repeat when N.C. State defeated Florida State in Raleigh 24-7.

Wolfpack fan Josh Lipsky will be in Carter-Finley Stadium on Saturday after getting a free ticket for Saturday's game.

"I called up 10 or 12 of my friends, basically everyone I could find, until I finally found one," he says.

Tickets for the game have been sold out for about a month. Many people are looking at the newspaper and the Internet in hopes of getting into the game.

Mike Morris, a senior at N.C. State, is hoping to be at the game Saturday, but he does not want to have to pay for tickets.

"I think it is kind of ridiculous that we are having to pay for tickets, and we are students. We should have tickets," he says.

Florida State fans headed into town, full of Seminole swagger and tickets for the game.

"We were here two years ago for the debacle, and hopefully, we hope to redeem ourselves in about 24 hours," says FSU fan Marty Massey.

Fans, who are unable to get tickets for the game, can watch it for free at the ESA.
