1 #22 NC State - 23 vs. Purdue - 3 on Thu Dec 08, 2011 9:50 pm

GG Davis...this game was a reckoning for the Defence as they had endured a tough week on the hotseat after their first two games of rather mediocre play. The question was would they man up and dominate or wilt like daisies on a hot summer day? On this day...they manned up BIG TIME with 5 picks and holding RB Bolden to under 50 yards rushing on the day. Including a pick on their own 2 yard line that was returned 98 yards for a touchdown that at the time took the game from a potential 7-3 Purdue lead to a 10-0 NC State lead which was a lead that would never be given up.

At the half the Boilermakers made some adjustments on D and were able to hold the Wolfpack off the scoreboard, but the damage was done and Purdue was only able to addd a FG to the scoreline for a final score of 23-3.

Mustafa Greene had a rushing TD and over 100 yards rushing on the day and WR TJ Graham chipped in with some key catches and over 100 yards receiving. Although Glennon had a pedestrian 100+ passing day he did not throw for a TD but also did not throw any picks.

NC State improves to 3-0 on the season and looks forward to its week 4 opponent.

Thanks...this game was the first real test for the Pack! Luckily I was able to get out of the gates early and score to get the Boilermakers off their game a bit. This was a game where a few bounces go the other way and it could have been a whole different result!

Me either...I just hope that when it comes up it will be meaningful in that the division lead is up for grabs. Not till week 11 though so lots to play for before that game comes up!

Good game. We had our chances early. That interception for TD to end the first killed us. And the 3 picks from your MLB didn't help...

We have many practice sessions scheduled during the week 4 bye
