It was a feel-good game for NC State, which desperately needed something to feel good about this season. Now the Wolfpack can regroup during the bye week and get healthy before back-to-back road trips to Virginia and Florida State.
Quarterback Mike Glennon
threw four touchdowns to four different receivers, the Wolfpack got four interceptions, and after missing the last two games with a knee injury, linebacker Terrell Manning made a big comeback with nine tackles, one sack and an interception.
With so much other excitement going on in the ACC today, this game took a backseat to the conference play, but it was just as important as scoring that touchdown before the half as opposed to allowing one and losing momentum. NC State rebounded from back-to-back losses, but still needs to win four of its last six to become bowl eligible. The bye week will be critical in preparation for the final stretch.
