1 #21 NC STATE - 45 @ Cincinnati - 38 on Fri Dec 09, 2011 11:25 pm

This game got off to a great start for the Wolfpack as TJ Graham took the opening kickoff to the house for a 7-0 lead. However, that lead was shortlived as Cincy answered right back with a TD of their own on a 75 yard bomb to a WR that broke two tackles before reaching the endzone. From there the NC State defence bore down and the Wolfpack took a commanding 35-17 lead into halftime. At the half a lot of shouting and cursing was heard coming out of the Bearcats dressing room and when the teams resumed play in the 3rd quarter Cincy was a completely different team. QB Glennon who had a great first half was suddenly under pressure and started to make mistakes as he threw 3 picks in the 2nd half which lead to 3 unanswered Bearcat TDs and all of a sudden the Wolfpack found themselves on the wrong end of a 38-35 scoreline in the 4th quarter. Luckily Mustafa Greene was able to right the ship on a 19 yard TD scamper that put the Wolfpack back infront 42-38 and a last second FG gave the Wolfpack a wild win in Cincy 45-38. After the game Coach Rowe was seen berating his DC as the Defence completely looked out of sync in the second half after a strong first half. With the D once again on the hot seat this rollercoaster season for NC State continues with the Offence doing just enough to win as the Wolfpack improve to 4-0.

QB Glennon 330 yrds 2 Tds 3 INTs
RB Greene 28 carries for 139 Yrds and 3 TDs
WR Graham 127 yrds and 1 TD

WR Graham 1 Kickoff TD for 96 yrds
