The No. 17 Louisville Cardinals are set to play the No. 24 North Carolina State Wolfpack this Thursday evening in Raleigh, North Carolina, at Carter-Finley Stadium.

The two ranked teams can look forward to warm and dry conditions.

This is N.C. State's first national ranking in seven years.

Temperatures in the evening will feel a little more like September rather than October.

Thursday afternoon will be pretty sunny for tailgating with temperatures reaching the lower 80s. However, the temperature will be closer to 70 F by kickoff, and temperatures will continue to slowly drop into the 60s throughout the game.

The wind will generally be under 5 mph and will not factor into the game.
