Sports teams from North Carolina State University are called the Wolfpack. This is because, in 1921, somebody was angry at the university's football team. He thought that they acted like wolves.[2] They play mostly against other colleges in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which is part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.[3]
