NC State needed a momentum swing, and it got one.

While tied with East Carolina in the first half on Saturday afternoon, the Wolfpack took the lead on a blocked punt that they were able to return for a touchdown.

Here’s the play:

That’s Josiah Provillion on the block and Sean Brown with the recovery and touchdown.

NC State fell behind 7-0 after the offense went 3-and-out on its first drive. Quarterback Devin Leary started just 3-of-7, but quickly rebounded with a touchdown pass to Thayer Thomas.

NC State is 1-5 all-time in Greenville with one of those losses coming during the Dave Doeren era. The Wolfpack can’t afford a loss today as they’ve entered the season with College Football Playoff aspirations.

The Wolfpack entered this game as a 12-point favorite.
