N.C. State Crushes No. 7 Clemson 37-13

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Glennon threw three touchdown passes and North Carolina State shut down No. 7 Clemson's explosive offense to help the Wolfpack beat the mistake-prone Tigers 37-13 on Saturday.

Tobais Palmer had a dazzling 43-yard catch-and-run touchdown to highlight a surprisingly dominating performance by N.C. State (6-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Wolfpack scored 27 points in the second quarter, then increased the lead and never let the Tigers (9-2, 6-2) build any momentum to rally.

It was N.C. State's first win against a top-10 team in five seasons under Tom O'Brien, and it was a surprising outcome considering the Wolfpack needed to win the final two games just to become bowl eligible. Not to mention that Tigers had already wrapped up the league's Atlantic Division crown and an appearance in the ACC championship game in Charlotte on Dec. 3.

    Chuck and Anoynomous, please perdict Maryland to beat the puppies next week, lol, because apparently you don't know what you are talking about. The wolfpack continue to win, while the holes continue to fall apart. No. 7 team in the nation, taken down, well we didnt' shut them out like we did the holes, but they played well. UNC, that's a basketball school, defintely not football. GO ahead and jump ship and start watching basketball. The holes, next to last in the coastal division, let's go Duke!
