This entrance is sure to get any fan pumped and ready to cheer on the Wolfpack to victory.

Flag Bearers

“The Power Sound of the South”

NC State is home to one of the best marching bands in the country, as The Power Sound of the South is sure to put on a great show worth the price of admission all on its own.
