SEC Network sideline analyst Cole Cubelic has a bold surprise in his College Football Playoff picks.

On Friday morning, Cubelic released his final playoff picks. His four teams were Alabama (no surprise), Ohio State (no surprise), Stanford (fair enough) and … NC State! The Wolfpack!

It’s no secret NC State has one of the nation’s top defensive lines (No. 8 nationally in run defense in 2016), which could translate to success on the field. But the College Football Playoff?

The Wolfpack has never sniffed a national title in its history, though it has won the ACC seven times since 1957. The last time it won a conference title was 1979.

NC State will battle South Carolina in Charlotte on Sept. 2. The Wolfpack currently is a 5.5-point favorite. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET on ESPN.
