Russell Wilson threw for 368 yards and three touchdowns as the NC State Wolfpack went on the road and defeated Georgia Tech 45-28.

Georgia Tech had a late run in the fourth quarter to make the game closer but the Wolfpack hung on to win on the road.

The NC State Defense was especially stout today only allowing 247 rushing yards, which may sound like a lot but Georgia Tech's offense ranks third in rushing in the nation averaging 345 yards a game.

NC State's defense forced GT to throw an uncharacteristic amount of times (18) and forced them into many 3rd-and-longs.

Georgia Tech was 4-14 on third down and 1-4 on fourth down, GT also had trouble holding to the ball fumbling two times.

Dean Haynes and Mustafa Greene rushed for a total of 149 yards and one touchdown. With each passing game the freshmen running backs continue to grow and surprise with their game play.

Georgia Tech's leading rusher was Josh Nesbitt who had 95 yards on 19 carries, but that stat is misleading considering the majority of his yards came on a 61-yard rush on the first play in the third quarter.

Georgia Tech and NC State's special teams both were not very good. GT had a blocked punt returned for a touchdown and NC State's kicker Josh Czajkowski missed two kicks that were chip shots.

Overall I was very impressed with the way Russell Wilson and the rest of the offense played, along with the Wolfpack defense.
