How about those apples!? A commanding win in BOTH Chestnut Hill AND Winston-Salem this season!
State showed real progress on Saturday and delivered some execution that will force Florida State, Syracuse and UNC to perhaps be more respectful of our offensive and defensive balance in their preparation for the Pack.
(1) Jacoby Brissett showed the most/best accuracy with the long ball as he has in two seasons at the help of quarterbacking the Wolfpack. This was capped by an 83-yard bomb to Maurice Trowell.
(2) The defense, particularly the secondary that has been burned too many times to mention this year, finally created turnovers (including three interceptions).
(3) Kyle Bambard made a field goal and didn’t have any extra points blocked.
BC LED THE NATION in rushing defense allowing 1.9 yards per rush and was allowing 2.18 yards per rush in ACC play (which included games against both Clemson and FSU). NC State averaged 4.2 yards a carry on Saturday without our top two running backs and behind a patch-work offensive line! State was actually above 5 yards a carry in the third quarter before shifting into conservative play calling mode.
