The numbers that mattered: NCSU at Wake Forest
2 NC State had allowed just two plays of 30 or more yards entering the game, but the Wolfpack allowed Wake to complete two passes that went for 38 yards or more.
3 Straight games where the Pack has used the same starting offensive line combination after starting with three different fivesomes in the first three games.
4 Wake Forest was given four first downs by NC State penalties.
6 NC State fell victim to its horrendous streak in Winston-Salem once again on Saturday. However, they bring a streak of their own into this weekend's tilt with Syracuse — the Pack is 6-0 all-time against the Orange with the last game coming in 1998.
7 NCSU allowed Wake to convert on seven of its 14 third-down conversions.
7 Each team tallied seven tackles for loss last Saturday, but Wake's total included four sacks, while State got to Tanner Price just one time.
8 For the third time in five games, NC State was flagged for at least eight penalties. The Pack was called for eight penalties for 74 yards and rank 12th out of 14 ACC teams for penalties.
41 State has been flagged for at least 41 yards in penalties in each game this season. The season low was five called penalties for 41 yards in the season opener against Louisiana Tech.
44 After the defense recorded seven tackles for loss against Wake, NC State checks in at No. 5 nationally and second in the league with an average of 8.8 per game.
60 Redshirt junior quarterback Pete Thomas paced the squad with 60 rushing yards against Wake. With leading rusher Matt Dayes out with an injury, the Pack's other runners combined to rush 16 times for 57 yards (3.6 yards per carry).
75 Each of Wake's four touchdown drives went at least 75 yards. Those four drives totaled 322 yards, while the other seven drives totaled 81 yards.
82 Wake quarterback Tanner Price totaled a game-best 82 rushing yards, to go along with a touchdown run. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry.
107.6 The Pack limited Wake to 114 yards on the ground last weekend. On the year, they have allowed an average of just 107.6 yards per game, which is ranked 17 th nationally and second in the ACC. It is a drastic improvement from last year's average of 154.77 yards per game.
