The North Carolina State Wolfpack will get it all started for the Atlantic Coast Conference when they take on Tennessee next Friday night in Atlanta.

A bit of good news for State is that Da'Rick Rogers, one of the Vols' leading receivers, has been kicked off the team for violating team rules. He caught 67 passes for more than 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns a year ago.

But even without Rogers, the Vols can still put up numbers through the air with Tyler Bray at quarterback, so the Wolfpack's defense should definitely be tested Friday.

One of the biggest question marks throughout training camp in Raleigh is the situation at linebacker. Sterling Lucas returns after missing last season with an injury, but guys like Rodman Noel, Brandon Pittman and Rickey Dowdy will all have to step up for the Pack to be successful.
