RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Russell Wilson threw three touchdowns and ran for another, and North Carolina State snapped a four-game losing streak by holding off Maryland 38-31 on Saturday in a matchup of the ACC Atlantic Division's worst teams.
Wilson was 25-for-38 for 343 yards and the Wolfpack (4-5, 1-4) made just enough plays to secure their second win against a Bowl Subdivision opponent. Both teams combined for 752 total yards.
Wilson overcame a career-worst three interceptions with touchdown tosses of 17 yards to George Bryan, 35 yards to Donald Bowens and 18 yard to Darrell Davis. Wilson and Jamelle Eugene each had 2-yard scoring runs.
Torrey Smith returned a kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown, the school-record third of his career. Alex Wujciak returned an interception 70 yards for a score, while Davin Meggett and Chris Turner had 1-yard TD runs for Maryland (2-7, 1-4).
