NC State 52 Louisville 10: ACCDN Highlight Reel
NC State beat Louisville 52-10 earlier today. Ryan Finley moved into 2nd place all-time in school history in passing yards. Kelvin Harmon became the 3rd Wolfpack receiver to record two 1,000 receiving yard seasons.
Here’s the ACC Digital Network highlight reel of the victory, that moved the Wolfpack to 7-3.
NC State Picks Up 1st Win at Louisville, Stomping the Cardinals 52-10
NC State was a 16-point favorite against Louisville today, and unlike last week, they were more than able to cover such a large spread, stomping the Cardinals 52-10 on their own turf.
The Wolfpack picked up their 1st victory ever at Louisville, and improved to 7-3 on the year.
After going 3-and-out on the opening drive, and allowing Louisville to march down and kick a field goal, NC State managed to score 45 unanswered points thereafter.
For the 5th time in 2018, the Wolfpack put up 500+ yards of total offense, putting 518 on the Cardinals. Redshirt Graduate Senior Quarterback Ryan Finley passed for 316 yards, completing 72.2% of his passes, for a career high 4 touchdowns (0 interceptions). After today’s efforts, he moved into 2nd all-time in school history in career passing yards.
Three Wolfpack receivers had 7 receptions, and each one of them snagged a touchdown. Junior Kelvin Harmon had 7 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown. Harmon became only the third receiver in school history to have two seasons of over 1,000 yards receiving. Redshirt Junior Jakobi Meyers had 7 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown, and Sophomore Emeka Emezie had 7 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.
Senior Running Back Reggie Gallaspy gave NC State the boost in the rushing game they’ve been needing, carrying the ball 11 times for 73 yards and 2 touchdowns, and also had 2 receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown.
NC State has been wanting to score more touchdowns in the red zone, and today they got it across the goal line 6 out of their 7 trips into the red zone. Freshman Place Kicker Chris Dunn kicked a field goal on the other trip, making the Wolfpack a perfect 7 of 7 on the day.
Redshirt Graduate Senior Linebacker Germaine Pratt and Freshman Nickelback Tanner Ingle led the Pack in tackles, with 7. The Wolfpack had 7 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. While they may have given up 411 yards of total offense, much of it came when the Wolfpack offense was filled with reserves.
NC State finished the day +2 in turnover margin.
The Wolfpack are now 7-3, and will head to Chapel Hill next Saturday, for a 12:20pm kickoff.
Ryan Finley Moves Into 2nd Place In NC State History in Passing Yards
Redshirt Graduate Senior Quarterback Ryan Finley passed Jamie Barnette today, moving into 2nd place all-time in career passing yards.
NC State Career Passing Yard Leaders
1) Philip Rivers – 13,484
2) Ryan Finley – 9,757
3) Jamie Barnette – 9,461
4) Russell Wilson – 8,545
5) Mike Glennon – 7,411
Finley currently ranks 8th all-time in career passing yards in ACC history.
If Finley plays in the bowl game, he is on pace to finish his career with 10,711 passing yards, which would rank 3rd in ACC history. Keep in mind, the two guys ahead of him played 4 seasons, instead of his three.
Kelvin Harmon Becomes 3rd NC State Receiver With Two 1,000 Yards Seasons
Junior Wide Receiver Kelvin joined an elite club today, becoming only the third receiver in NC State history to have two seasons of 1,000 receiving yards.
The other 2 receivers to pull off the feat:
Torry Holt – 1997 (1,099) & 1998 (1,604)
Jerricho Cotchery – 2002 (1,192) & 2003 (1,369)
Kelvin Harmon – 2017 (1,017) & 2018 (Currently – 1,065 yards)
Harmon is on pace to finish the season with 1,361 receiving yards (if he plays in the bowl game), which would be the third most by a receiver in a single season in NC State history, and tied for the 7th most in ACC history.
Most Receiving Yards in a Single Season in NC State History
- Torry Holt 1,604 – 1008
- Jerricho Cotchery – 1,369
- Kelvin Harmon – on pace for 1,361
