NC State 42, Presbyterian 0: Highlights of the big-play parade

Matt Dayes has had himself a nice couple of weeks. He finished the USF game with 68 yards rushing, 39 yards receiving, and one touchdown; he topped that against Presbyterian with 86 yards on the ground, 55 yards receiving, and two scores. He managed all that on just 10 touches.

While Dayes has been a prominent contributor recently, Bryan Underwood is just getting back into the scoring swing of things. It was a relief to see Jacoby Brissett finally connect with him for a long touchdown, and they could have had another one later.

Thanks in large part to the quick-strike nature of most of the Wolfpack's scoring drives, State ran only 53 plays from scrimmage and held the ball for less than 23 minutes. Four touchdown drives lasted less than two minutes, including a pair of one-play scoring drives. Maybe that's not super ideal for the defense, but who cares, man, big plays are too much fun.
