Wolfpack Pride of ACC Football

Hey, one thing is for sure – all the grousing about the further demise of ACC football can’t be blamed on N.C. State. The Wolfpack has won its three opening non-conference games. We believe (for recreational purposes only), they were underdogs in Las Vegas for both games.

Last night, Russell Wilson threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns as N.C. State beat Cincinnati 30-19 to improve to 3-0 for the first time in eight years.

Jay Smith and Curtis Underwood Jr. had first-half touchdown catches, and Mustafa Greene had a 31-yard scoring run that gave N.C. State a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. The Wolfpack led the entire way behind Wilson and a defense that pressured Zach Collaros much of the night.

Cincinnati (1-2) didn't run a play inside the N.C. State 32 until the final minutes, but the Wolfpack had a big lead by that point. Collaros connected with D.J. Woods twice for touchdowns, the first from 68 yards late in the first half.

The Wolfpack is off to its best start since winning its first nine games behind eventual NFL first-round draft pick Philip Rivers at quarterback in 2002.
