N.C. State: LB Drake Thomas. Thomas had 90 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks for a strong, veteran defense.

Maryland: QB Taulia Tagovailoa. He has thrown 17 touchdown passes with four rushing scores. He also gone three straight games without an interception.

NOTABLE

N.C. State: The Wolfpack peaked at No. 10 in the AP Top 25 this season before losing preseason ACC player of the year Devin Leary at quarterback to injury.

BOWL HISTORY

N.C. State: Third appearance in a bowl game in its home state going back to the Belk and Meineke Car Care games, eighth in 10 seasons under Dave Doeren and 35th bowl bid going back to last year's canceled Holiday Bowl.

Maryland: First appearance in the Duke's Mayo Bowl, second straight postseason trip and 29th overall.
