Someone forget to tell the Noles that there was a game being played in the first half. Apparently also the Wolfpack forgot that they were at the bottom of most of the ACC stats.
Penalties were once again a deciding factor in keeping the Noles behind in the first half. However, the second half was different as the Noles made corrections and limited their mistakes to finally beat NC State 26-17. A Ponder to Reed TD put the Noles ahead in the fourth quarter and a later Gano fifty-some yard FG put the game out of reach for the Pack.
Antone Smith had some excellent runs and Ponder showed poise in the game. There is a lot of room for improvement but the win keeps the Noles in the ACC mix as they get ready to take on Virginia Tech in Tallahassee next Saturday.
