The North Carolina State Wolfpack play host to the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday in a match up of two struggling teams. When the teams face off at Carter Finley Stadium, there will be a brand new logo at midfield.
North Carolina State generally has the same logo from their helmets at the 50-yard line, but now they’ll change things up for the game to stake claim to the state of North Carolina.
Here is their updated midfield logo:

The midfield logo has been confirmed, but there is one problem.
The updated Wolfpack logo is a blatant rip off of the East Carolina midfield logo. You can see a comparison of the two midfield logos below, via Backing The Pack:
East Carolina fans are going to have a field day with this one.
But hey, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. You would just like to believe N.C. State would be above imitating ECU.
