For the second time in less than a week, the University of South Florida announced a home-and-home football series with an Atlantic Coast Conference team.

Finally, NC State has also agreed to a home-and-home with BYU, calling for BYU to visit Raleigh on November 9, 2024, and NC State to return the favor on August 29, 2030. The two schools will meet at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina on November 9, 2024 and then at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah on August 29, 2030.

"I really like this home-and-home series with NC State", said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. "The game in Raleigh provides a unique late-season travel opportunity for our football program, and it's great to bring another ACC opponent to Provo".

N.C. State also agreed to a three-game deal with Louisiana Tech. The first two games will be at Carter-Finley Stadium in 2021 and 2024. The Wolfpack will travel to Ruston, La., for a return matchup in 2025. The Wolfpack won the only previous meeting between the teams, 40-14 in Dave Doeren's first season with the program in 2013.

The Wolfpack will play a home-and-home series against USF, with the Bulls coming to Carter-Finley Stadium in 2021 before playing again in Tampa in 2024.

Mark Harlan, USF Athletics Director, announced two new series, one against North Carolina State and another against Louisville.

The Wolfpack have won 11 conference titles, played in 31 bowl games, finished ranked in 16 seasons and had six consensus All-Americans over the years.

USF and NC State first met in the 2005 Meineke Car Car Bowl and have played three times overall.

The Bulls are 1-2 all-time against N.C. State, with the win a 41-10 rout of the Wolfpack in Raleigh in 2008.
