North Carolina State takes care of business vs. Florida State
North Carolina State won a relatively comfortable game vs. Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday, 28-14.
The Wolfpack controlled the game from start-to-finish, gaining 400 total yards on the day.
Quarterback Devin Leary was exception as he completed 21-of-32 passes for 314 yards and 4 touchdowns. He had answer-after-answer for a tough Florida State defense.
Four different NC State receivers caught touchdowns: Christopher Toudle, Trent Pennix, C.J. Riley and Ricky Person. Pennix led the team with 97 yards and an average of 32.3 yards per reception.
The biggest separation between these teams came on third down. NC State was 8-of-18 in that situation while Florida State converted just 2-of-16. The Seminoles punted nine times in this game.
McKenzie Milton got the start in place of an ill Jordan Travis. It was his first game time since FSU’s 0-4 start in September. Milton went 22-of-44 for 233 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
Florida State is now 3-6 this season and will need to win out in order to become bowl eligible. The Seminoles close the season with Miami, Boston College and Florida.
With the win, North Carolina State moves to 7-2 overall and 4-1 in the ACC. The Wolfpack will face Wake Forest on the road next week in a game that will likely determine the winner of the Atlantic division.
