Sorry for the delay on this first one. Had to get on with this training trip to Wisconsin. Anyway, on with the summary: NC State @ Texas Tech NC State came into this one pretty evenly matched, but still holding hopes of bringing the ACC/Big XII challenge to even. The Wolfpack lost the toss and ended up receiving. The Pack put together a solid drive, but stalled inside the 10 and had to settle for a FG. On Tech's first possession, an early INT gave NCSU the ball back with a short field. TE Mario Carter got open over the middle a couple plays later for a 31 yard TD from Glennon. 10-0 NCSU. The teams traded punts for a bit until NC State was able to get another drive going. Again, Glennon found Carter for his second TD of the game. With 1:44 left in the half, it was 17-0 Pack. It looked like maybe NC State would just cruise in this one, until they gave up the huge 62 yard TD to Tech. 44 seconds left in the half and NC State got the ball back with solid field position. Coach Parrothead thought maybe he could get a FG out of the position but Glennon throws a pick. With 10 seconds left, TT was able to put it again. Halftime score was 17-14, NC State. Solid D came to play again, and the third quarter only saw a Texas Tech field goal. Going into the 4th, it's 17 all. NC State was able to get another drive and punch it in with HB Washington to take a touchdown lead. After holding Tech and getting a punt back, State drove down the field, but had to settle for the FG. It's now 27-17 with 2:12 to go. Tech struck with some quick passes, taking advantage of the open space the defensive backs were giving. With 1:27 left, Tech scored to put it at 27-24. The drama then ensued. Tech was able to snag the onside kick and was again screaming down the field. Well inside FG range, it seemed like Tech could tie it. However, LB Ryan Cheek would leap up and snag the INT to preserve the win. Player of the game for NC State was TE Mario Carter with 6 catches for 99 yards and 2 td's.
