Through 3 Quarters
Only one more quarter stands between the NC State Wolfpack and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Boston College Eagles 31-7.
NC State has been relying on QB Devin Leary, who has passed for two TDs and 261 yards on 22 attempts, and WR Thayer Thomas, who has caught four passes for one TD and 122 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Thomas' 79-yard TD reception in the third quarter.
No one has had a standout game offensively for BC, but they have gotten one touchdown from QB Dennis Grosel.
This is the least points the Eagles have had yet this season going into the fourth quarter.
No. 22 NC State @ Boston College
Current Records: NC State 4-1; Boston College 4-1
What to Know
After a three-game homestand, the NC State Wolfpack will be on the road. They will take on the Boston College Eagles at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Alumni Stadium after a week off. Both teams have allowed few points on average (NC State 15.8, BC 16.8), so any points scored will be well earned.
The Wolfpack beat the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs 34-27 two weeks ago. NC State's success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB Zonovan Knight, who punched in one rushing touchdown, and RB Ricky Person Jr., who punched in one rushing touchdown.
Meanwhile, BC didn't finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 19-13 to the Clemson Tigers two weeks ago. QB Dennis Grosel had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once.
This next contest is expected to be close, with NC State going off at just a 3-point favorite. Those burned by picking them against the spread two weeks ago might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
NC State's victory lifted them to 4-1 while Boston College's loss dropped them down to 4-1. We'll see if the Wolfpack can repeat their recent success or if the Eagles bounce back and reverse their fortune.
