While it is his first time being named the league's top rookie, the redshirt freshman was named the league's Offensive Back of the Week following the Wolfpack's victory over then-No. 15 ranked East Carolina.
Wilson completed 16 of 33 pass attempts and carried the ball 14 times for a team-high 69 yards, with one rushing touchdown and two scoring passes. Not only was he the team's leading rusher, but he was also responsible for all three of his team's touchdowns and 221 yards of total offense. The 69 yards rushing was the 10th best single-game rushing mark all-time for a Wolfpack quarterback.
He has an active streak of 175 straight passing attempts without throwing an interception, the second-longest streak in school history for a single season. That streak spans Wilson's last six games, as his last pass attempt at Clemson was picked off. That is the longest such streak for a Wolfpack quarterback without an interception since Jamie Barnette went 179 attempts in 1998.
Among active NCAA quarterbacks, that mark ranks fifth and is the longest active streak in the NCAA.
On the season, Wilson has just one interception, the fewest in the nation among qualifying quarterbacks who rank in the NCAA top-100 for passing, passing yards-per-game, total passing yards and/or passing efficiency.
