Let’s take a look at who contributed to the North Carolina State Wolfpack’s 28-23 victory over the Boston College Eagles on Saturday.
Ryan Finley continues to impress. Even on a day where he threw two interceptions, he was still - by far - the best quarterback in the ACC this weekend.

RGII broke the 100 yard mark for the first time this season and averaged over 4 yards per carry. This is the kind of production we were hoping to get from him when the season started. Ricky Person continues to live up to the preseason hype as the change-of-pace back. Despite a slow start, he is averaging 5.5 yards per carry for the year. Nakia Robinson announced he is transferring.
Kelvin Harmon and Jakobi Meyers were so dominant on Saturday. In fact, they were the top two WRs in the ACC for week 6. The shocking thing from stats above is seeing Emezie on the field for so many snaps and not catching a single pass.

The running game has really picked up since Dylan Autenrieth became healthy enough to play. Cary Angeline only has two catches in three games but both of them have been big.
The offensive line has really started to click with their run blocking. Joe Sculthorpe has turned filling in for Terronne Prescod in Week 4 into a regular spot in the rotation and has played very well. This group is one of the best in the nation.
The defensive line played a big role in shutting down Boston College’s offense for most of the day. It’s disappointing that Roseboro doesn’t have credit for a sack yet this year but he has been playing better and led the d-line in tackles in Week 6.
Germaine Pratt had a monster game against Boston College. He led the Pack with 13 tackles in a game where BC only ran 50 plays. That means 26% of the Eagles’ offense ended with Pratt on the tackle. The second leading tackler for the Pack was Isaiah Moore with 7.
Tanner Ingle took every single snap at the nickel position while Griffin and Phillips were on special teams duty.
Jarius Morehead, the Pack’s second leading tackler for the season, had a quiet game by his standards with only two tackles. However, it looks like BC must have been running a lot more plays toward Dexter Wright’s side of the field. He had 6 tackles in only 24 snaps.
Chris Ingram and Nick McCloud went the distance on Saturday.
Chris Dunn, Tanner Ingle, Alim McNeill, and Kishawn Miller have now played more than four games so they will not be redshirting this year.
