NC State Beats No. 23 North Carolina (Again) 28-27

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes and Alan-Michael Cash blocked a field goal with about 5 minutes left to help North Carolina State rally past No. 23 North Carolina 28-27 on Saturday.

Wilson connected twice with Owen Spencer for scores, including the go-ahead 38-yard touchdown two plays into the fourth quarter that gave the Wolfpack (5-7, 2-6 ACC) a third straight win against its next-door neighbors and fiercest football rival.

T.J. Yates threw two touchdown passes to Jheranie Boyd for the Tar Heels (8-4, 4-4), while Johnny White scored on a 40-yard run that helped North Carolina take a 10-point halftime lead.

But the Tar Heels repeatedly cost themselves with penalties and a goal-line fumble that wiped out what should have been a short TD run in the first quarter.
