Game Preview

The official name is the Pop-Tarts Bowl, but the tasty matchup set to be played Thursday in Orlando, Fla., might as well be called the Transfer Bowl.

The game will feature No. 18 North Carolina State and No. 25 Kansas State, which had a combined 33 players enter the transfer portal, in their first-ever matchup on the football field. All-American linebacker Payton Wilson also announced Sunday he won’t play in the game, choosing to focus on the NFL draft preparations instead.

This game, formed in 1990 as the Blockbuster Bowl, has gone by a variety of names, including the Carquest Bowl, Champs Sports Bowl and Camping World Bowl. The moniker doesn’t matter to NC State head coach Dave Doeren, who said he has nothing but respect for Kansas State.
