NC State athletic teams are nicknamed the 'Wolfpack' (most womens' teams are named the 'Lady Wolfpack'). The name was adopted in 1922 when a disgruntled fan described the behavior of the student body at athletic events as being "like a wolf pack." Prior to the adoption of the current nickname, NC State athletic teams went by such names as the Aggies, the Techs, and the Red Terrors. Since the 1960s the Wolfpack has been represented at athletic events by its mascots, Mr. and Ms. Wuf. In print, the 'Strutting Wolf' is used and is known by the name 'Tuffie.'

NC State Fight Song

The words to the Fight Song were written by Hardy Ray, Class of 1926, and the music was written by Edward Gruber[1].

Shout aloud to the men who will play the game to win
We're behind you, keep fighting for State---
Hold that line, hold 'em fast,
We'll reach victory at last
We're behind you, keep fighting for State---
Rise up to the fray and let your colors wave,
Shout out for dear old N.C. State;--GO STATE!
And where-e'er we go,
we'll let the whole world know,
We're behind you, keep fighting for State.


Red and White Song

The Red and White Song is a popular song sung by fans and played by the band at many NC State athletic events, especially at football and basketball games. It was written by J. Perry Watson, a former Director of Music at NC State. The song, although very popular, is in fact not the official Fight Song of NC State[3]. The colors mentioned in the song refer to the NCSU's main athletic colors, while "Caroline", "Devils", and "Deacs" refer to other Tobacco Road team names: Carolina Tar Heels, Duke Blue Devils, and Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The song's lyrics are as follows: Tobacco Road is a term that refers to the tobacco producing area of North Carolina, and is often used when referring to sports (particularly basketball) played between rival North Carolina universities. ...

We're the Red and White from State
And we know we are the best.
A hand behind our back,
We can take on all the rest.
Come over the hill, Caroline.*
Devils and Deacs stand in line.
The Red and White from N.C. State.
-Go State!!!

The UNC-NCSU rivalry is a rivalry, primarily in sports, between University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and North Carolina State University (NCSU). ...
