What is there left to say about this NC State team, which was just nails after taking a haymaker from the best team in the country on Friday night. Now they’ve done what no one expected them to: beat Arkansas at their place, and conquer Kevin Kopps to do it.
Jose Torres, you are my hero and I love you.

That was yet another gut-check situation for the Pack, which saw Arkansas tie the game in the seventh inning. An extra-inning game would have been bad news with State’s non-existent bullpen depth, so Torres went ahead and took care of that potential problem for us. So clutch.
The Razorbacks hadn’t lost a weekend series all year. They have now. NC State heads to Omaha for the second time in the last eight years, and there’s no doubt this Wolfpack team will go in believing it can win the whole thing. This weekend absolutely proved that they can.
What a win. Go crazy, folks.
