George Bryan's touchdown catch in the first quarter marked the 15th of his career, moving him into a tie (with Owen Spencer and Koren Robinson) for fifth place in school history. Bryan now ranks 15th in school history with 103 career receptions.
Pack Debuts New Unis
For the first time in school history, the Wolfpack football team took the field in black uniforms today. The black jerseys were emblazoned with pink lettering, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and today was the team's only home game this month.
The Pack also wore red helmets this afternoon for the first time since the 1999 season.
Graham Moves Into Second Place
With 139 all-purpose yards today, senior T.J. Graham moved into second place in Wolfpack history in that category for his career. Graham, who now boasts 4,505 all-purpose yards, passed Torry Holt and now trails only Ted Brown, who amassed 5,565 yards from 1975-78.
In other words, Graham has more all-purpose yards in his career than any State player in the past 33 years.
Glennon Hits Paydirt
Mike Glennon threw four touchdown passes to four different receivers today, giving him 17 for the season. Just halfway through the 2011 campaign, he is already tied for the eighth-best single season mark in school history. Only Philip Rivers, Jamie Barnette and Russell Wilson have ever thrown more TDs for the Pack in a season than Glennon has thrown thus far in 2011.
Pack Gets Picks
The Wolfpack pulled down four interceptions today, giving the squad 12 for the season. David Amerson leads the team with six in 2011 and led the ACC heading into today's game.
Terrell Manning pulled down the third of his career and Brandan Bishop pulled down his third of the season, seventh of his career.
Manning Has Big Return
After missing the last two games with a knee injury, junior linebacker Terrell Manning returned in a big way today, finishing the game with nine tackles, one sack and an interception. Manning underwent knee surgery on Sept. 19th and returned to practice this week.
Washington Breaks Century Mark Again
With 109 yards on the ground, James Washington crossed 100 yards for the second-straight game. He put up 131 yards against Georgia Tech last week.
The last Pack back to rush for 100 or more yards in consecutive games was Andre Brown against Southern Miss and Florida State in 2005.
