Wolfpack looks to end home woes
Ken Tysiac * Charlotte Observer
With its six-game ACC losing streak snapped, N.C. State aims to erase another ugly streak Thursday night against Clemson at Carter-Finley Stadium. N.C. State (2-2, 1-2 ACC) won 17-14 on Thursday at Georgia Tech, but has lost five home games in a row against Division I-A opponents. The Wolfpack last won at home on Oct. 2, 2004 against Wake Forest. "We do have to win a game here for everybody involved," N.C. State coach Chuck Amato said. "Could you imagine this place if that game the other night was played here and won here, how crazy the fans and everybody else would have been?" Read More

Wolfpack special teams get their kicks

N.C. State's Chuck Amato, like most college coaches, talks to his team at length about the need to win the kicking game every time out. But Amato doesn't need to say much along those lines as the Wolfpack prepares to play host to Clemson Thursday night. He need only pull out Thursday night's 17-14 win at Georgia Tech as proof. Part of the exhibit is simple math. State's John Deraney converted his only field-goal try of the game. Normally reliable Georgia Tech kicker Travis Bell missed a pair of chip shots, including one with under nine minutes remaining that could have given the Yellow Jackets a 17-10 lead. There's your difference. But it goes much beyond that. Deraney, who doubles as the Wolfpack's placekicker and punter, repeatedly kept Tech in poor position with his kicks. The Yellow Jackets began six straight possessions inside their 20 at one juncture. Three began inside the 10. And two, thanks to hustling coverage by Marcus Hudson and others, began inside the 3. State's offense didn't consistently cash in on the field-position edge, and Tech escaped once after being pinned back to mount a 97-yard touchdown drive. But Deraney's efforts helped keep the Yellow Jackets running uphill throughout the soggy night. Read More
