Analysis

In a game with massive College Football Playoff implications, the Wolfpack heads to South Bend to take on a resurgent Fighting Irish team.

Chubb (6040/275) is considered one of the best defensive players in the country. He has already accumulated 37 total tackles, 13 tackles-for-loss and 6.5 sacks as a senior in 2017. In his three seasons as a starter he has collected 44.5 tackles-for-loss and 21.5 sacks. McGlinchey (6080/315) is also a three-year starter as both a right tackle (2015) and left tackle (2016 to present). He is a two-time captain and will have the primary responsibility of containing Chubb on Saturday afternoon.
