Wolfpack Is “Team Of The Week”

N.C. State was selected as the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week following its stirring 17-16 upset victory over #3 Florida State.

The Wolfpack (4-2) made the most of a blocked punt with 2:27 left, which gave them possession at the Florida State 43. Mike Glennon connected on two fourth-down passes on the winning drive. The second went to Bryan Underwood for a 2-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left. Niklas Sade made the extra point to win the game. 

Florida State was the highest-ranked opponent N.C. State has defeated since beating the #2 Seminoles 24-7 in 1998. 

The Football Writers Association of America has named a national team of the week since the 2002 season. This is the eighth season that the award has been sponsored by the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
