RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Glennon threw a touchdown pass to help North Carolina State beat North Carolina 13-0 on Saturday, earning its fifth straight win against its nearby rival.
James Washington ran for 110 yards for N.C. State (5-4, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), which again saved its best for the Tar Heels in a surprisingly one-sided -- and often ugly -- contest. The Wolfpack ranked in the bottom half of the league's defensive statistics, but overwhelmed the Tar Heels (6-4, 2-4) and shut down freshman runner Giovani Bernard. N.C. State also knocked starting quarterback Bryn Renner from the game by the end of the third quarter.
It was N.C. State's first shutout in the series in more than five decades.
With that type of defense, Glennon and the offense didn't need a big day. Glennon threw an interception on the first drive, but N.C. State protected the ball the rest of the day.
