RALEIGH, NC -- NC State junior center Ted Larsen met with the media today to discuss the upcoming game against Boston College.

"They were a great team and we didn't bring our 'A' game. We'll look at the film and try to make improvements on what happened, but we're just focusing on BC coming in here with the start of the ACC schedule."

"I think we almost had the advantage on the rush being slowed down with the rain... they were jumping it just about every snap. It was fun to get back there and block the quarterback as opposed to being the rusher. It's a different challenge, but I enjoyed it."

"I enjoy the sport of football, the training we do for it. I'm not going to compare coach Amato's regime here to coah O'Brien's."

"I can't say one was more fun than the other. I've enjoyed it the whole time I've been here."

"On any given Saturday anybody can win."

"All we can do is focus on the game ahead, keep moving one game at a time and hopefully we'll come out on top and hopefully we'll have a shot at playing for the ACC championship at the end of the season."

"We've got seven ACC games, we need to win them all to give us a shot to play in the ACC championship."

"Throughout camp we rotate people constantly in... whoever is out there. If someone needs to step up... I'm sure they will be able to handle it. I think Jake [Vermiglio] is [backing up Julian Williams]. He was a freshman all-american... he's a great guy to step up if we need him to."

"I'm not too worried about the o-line not meshing. We're all a pretty group of guys. We work well together. I don't think it will be that big of a problem if he doesn't play."

"Long-term we want to be one of the most physical offensive lines in the nation and the ACC. It's definitely something we are shooting for."

"I'm fairly confident. I had a bad snap against USF, that was embarrassing for me, but I feel really confident as far as calling out the defenses and setting up the blocking. Each game we play I feel more confident. I'm really excited to face BC. It will be a good challenge for me."
