NC State University - Carter-Finley Stadium
This panorama, taken by James Simmons, captures the action of the NC State Wolfpack playing in front of a sell-out crowd in Carter-Finley Stadium. Athletics at NC State began with football in 1892, a game between students from the North Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical College and the Raleigh Male Academy, on the grounds of what is now Pullen Park. From those humble beginnings, NC State University has been competing at the highest level of college athletics for more than a century, as a charter member of both the Southern Conference and, later, the Atlantic Coast Conference.
