By now we all know that NC State didn’t come close in the 34-0 lose to the Gamecocks. NCSU’s most effective drive ended at the USC 32-yard line….that is a nice stat and great job by the Ellis Johnson new and improved D.
NCSU’s passing attack finished 5-for-20 for 49 yards and two interceptions. The 49 yards were the lowest since they had that total against Appalachian State to open the 2006 season.
O’Brien said the USC secondary and pressure on the quarterback had a lot to do the lack of a passing attack in The State recently but here is my favorite quote….
“I think they are an excellent defense,” O’Brien said. “They are powerful. I think we rushed the ball (OK). We couldn’t throw on them, couldn’t get away from them.”
