North Carolina State opened its second training camp Saturday under Dave Doeren with a quarterback in place this time.
The Wolfpack had injuries and young players pressed into duty last season. But N.C. State is settled at quarterback with Florida transfer Jacoby Brissett making his debut this fall.
The N.C. State team also has a year of experience in Doeren's system. That puts the Wolfpack on better footing while trying to improve on last season's struggles.
N.C. State is coming off a three-win season that included the Wolfpack's first winless Atlantic Coast Conference record since 1959.
Doeren says many of his players picked up where they left off in spring drills and improved their games over the summer.
