NC State Tramples Murray State 65-7

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes to help North Carolina State's offense bounce back from a miserable showing in its season opener and beat Murray State 65-7 on Saturday night.

Wilson threw for 228 yards for the Wolfpack (1-1), who led 45-0 at halftime and scored on its first 10 drives before punting in the fourth quarter. Toney Baker also had two rushing scores and a receiving touchdown.

It was all part of a 484-yard day for N.C. State, which had 133 yards in last week's 7-3 home loss to South Carolina.

N.C. State's defense and special teams helped out, too. Leroy Burgess recovered fumbles on the Racers' first two possessions to set up short touchdown drives, while T.J. Graham had a 57-yard punt return later in the half that put the Wolfpack at Murray State's 1 later in the half.

Murray State (1-1) managed 36 total yards.
