From our SB Nation sister site Backing the Pack:
NC State deserves a lot of credit for how it responded to a difficult first half—because that was a really difficult first half. NC State could not run the ball for shit, and it felt like most of the time that Louisville dictated the entire terms of this game.
This could have turned out a lot differently, given that this was essentially a coin flip at halftime, but NC State showed that it is in fact better than this Louisville team. Louisville killed NC State’s running game, but NC State eventually decided that throwing the ball was a good idea, and the Wolfpack defense showed up big.
