Box Score / Photos

Points.  Pointspointspoints.

-- R.I.P. Airiel Down fight song cover, 9/5/09-9/5/09.  AC/DC's back with a vengeance.

-- Murray State had as many drives gain zero or negative yardage as they did drives that gained positive yardage.  They managed more than four plays on a drive just once--at 13-play march late in the game that resulted in their only score.

-- For the game, the Racers 36 total yards (1 rushing yard) on 45 plays.

-- Murray State possessed the ball for less than 25 minutes; longest time of possession in a quarter: 6 minutes, 50 seconds.

-- NC State, meanwhile, restored as much confidence offensively as is possible against this sort of opponent.  Four hundred and eighty-four yards on 77 plays (6.3 yds/play), 4 yards per carry, 10.1 yards per pass attempt.

-- NC State's average field position for the game was the Murray State 48 yard line.

-- The Pack converted 9-of-14 third downs and converted all eight of their red zone scoring opportunities.

-- Toney Baker ran for 74 yards and a pair of scores and also scored on a nice 39-yard screen pass.

-- Eleven different Wolfpack receivers caught a pass.

-- Starting the wave while NC State is on offense: still a problem.
