The ACC Players of the Week after Week 6 are out, and NC State has two players that earned honors this week:
OFFENSIVE BACK – Ryan Finley, NC State, Jr., QB, 6-4, 210, Phoenix, Ariz.
Finley led the Wolfpack to a 39-25 win over No. 17 Louisville, passing for 367 yards – his highest passing tally ever against an ACC team and the second-highest of his career. He completed 20 of 31 attempts (.645), including a 48-yard touchdown strike to Kelvin Harmon. Finley has moved into second place in ACC history with his streak of 288 straight pass attempts without an interception, second only to NCAA and NC State record-holder Russell Wilson. In addition to his passing efforts, Finley converted fourth-and-1 and third-and-1 quarterback sneaks into first downs against the Cardinals.
OFFENSIVE LINE – Will Richardson, NC State, Jr., OT, 6-6, 322, Burlington, N.C.
Richardson graded out at 96 percent to lead all Wolfpack offensive linemen following the Thursday night win over Louisville. With Richardson leading the way, NC State amassed 520 yards of total offense, and running back Nyheim Hines posted his second consecutive 100-yard rushing game. Richardson was in the game for all 73 of the Wolfpack’s offensive snaps and tallied a pair of knockdown blocks. (TheACC)
