Pack Falls to Orange 24-10

The Wolfpack fell to the Orange 24-10 on Saturday.

NC State was hoping to go into their matchup with #5 FSU with a ton of confidence. Instead, they’ll be limping in after a allowing Syracuse to run rampant on them to the tune of 362 yards and 3 TDs.

Once again Pete Thomas labored through a performance, finishing with 151 yards and a touchdown. Before the game there was speculation that the Pack would run out Brandon Mitchell at QB.  Instead, they’ll likely have to wait until Florida State to see their starting QB back in action. Thomas just wasn’t on the mark all night, and with the Wolfpack defense having to spend a lot of time on the field, Syracuse took advantage. The Orange had two runners break the century mark and nearly 3. Jerome Smith, Terrel Hunt,  and Prince-Tyson Gulley went for a combined 364 yds and the Wolfpack had no answer for them.

This game didn’t initially seem as lopsided as it ended up. Midway through the 4th quarter the game was knotted up at 10. That’s when Syracuse broke it open. Smith reeled off a 57 yard run and on the next play Gulley took it 18 yards for the score. That was all the Orange needed as the Wolfpack offense never could get anything going. Cuse added another score and that left the Pack with a 24-10 loss.

State will have a week off to prepare for #5 Florida State in Tallahassee. They will enter that game 3-3 and 0-3 in the ACC.
