NC State needed a win and that’s just what they got, beating The Orange 35-20.
Ryan Finley went for 340yds and a touchdown, while Matt Dayes was dominant, running for 108 yds and 3 TDs.
Syracuse was without their starting QB, and the Pack made fill-in Zach Mahoney pay. The State defense held Mahoney to 190yds passing on a pedestrian 13-24 with a pick.
The Wolfpack is now 5-5 on the season and need to win one of the next two to stay bowl eligible. That might not be so easy with tilts with Miami and UNC on the horizon.
