NC State QB Devin Leary dominates in win over Louisville
North Carolina State quarterback Devin Leary had one of the best games of his career on Saturday night in a win over the Cardinals.
Leary completed 25-of-36 passes for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Wolfpack scored 21 points in the 4th quarter. That late outburst helped NC State glide to a 28-13 win over Louisville.
Leary is quietly having an exceptional sophomore campaign and is now over 2,000 passing yards for the year. He also has a 21-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He’s now fifth in the ACC in passing yards, trailing only Virginia’s Brennan Armstrong, Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett, Wake Forest’s Sam Hartman and North Carolina’s Sam Howell.
Here’s a few highlights from his performance vs. Louisville:

NC State needed this type of game from Leary, as it struggled to establish the run. The Wolfpack managed just 44 rushing yards on 24 carries on the night.
Leary’s four touchdown passes went to four different receivers: Emeka Emezie, Devin Carter, Trent Pennix and C.J. Riley. Emezie led the way with 5 catches for 91 yards.
NC State faces Florida State on the road on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET.
