NOTEBOOK: Williams Moves Up List

NC State junior wide receiver Jarvis Williams caught two touchdowns passes in the loss to Clemson, giving him nine on the season which leads the Atlantic Coast Conference. The nine scores is the most by a Wolfpack receiver since Jerricho Cotchery caught ten scores in 2003.

*- Russell Wilson has 26 touchdown throws this season, the second-highest total in school history for a single year, trailing Philip Rivers' record of 34 in 2003. Wilson has also accounted for 30 touchdowns on the season (four rushing), tying for second all-time and it is the most since Philip Rivers was responsible for 30 in 2002. Wilson ranks fourth in career responsibility with 51, and needs one more to tie for third place.

*- Russell Wilson has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 18 of his 21 career games at quarterback and has thrown two or more scores in 14 games of those games (he played one snap of special teams only against USF last season).

*- Koyal George caught his second career touchdown in the first half, and first since the Virginia game in 2007 when he was a wide receiver and had three catches for 54 yards and that score. He switched to defense in 2008 and started five games at corner this season before switching back to offense during the bye week.

*- Jarvis Williams caught his eighth and ninth touchdowns of the season. The nine scores rank as the sixth-best single season total in school history. It was the most in a single season for a Wolfpack receiver since Jerricho Cotchery had 10 in 2003.

*- NC State started its eighth different secondary combo in 10 games when NC State started three freshman and senior Clem Johnson. Brandan Bishop, C.J. Wilson and Jarvis Byrd also started.

*- For the first time this season NC State started a different defensive line combination. The combo of Willie Young, Shea McKeen, Leroy Burgess, and Alan-Michael Cash started together in the first nine games until Michael Lemon started for McKeen against Clemson.

*- Redshirt freshman Mike Glennon threw his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter.
