Beamer says N.C. State is fast and confident

At the weekly ACC football press conference, Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer says that N.C. State's players not only are fast but they play fast.

"They're just fast," he said. "They're fast on defense; they're fast on offense. (QB) Russell Wilson makes them go and they're really an exceptional football team that's playing with a lot of confidence and playing fast, and we're going to have to have a great week to prepare for them."

On defense, Beamer mentioned State's senior linebacker Nate Irving. "He's a great football player, and he's like the rest of that crowd over there they're flying around and playing good defense and getting after folks," he said. "Not only is he a good player, I would bet he's a great leader for them."

Virginia Tech is 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the Coastal division of the conference after beating Boston College last weekend. Surprising N.C. State is 4-0 and 1-0 in the Atlantic division of the conference after beating Georgia Tech.
