NC State lost an ugly 45-24 game at Boston College as the Wolfpack saw yet another change under center, but this one may stick for the remainder of the season. Here are some takeaways from the loss:
The NC State football team suffered a 45-24 loss Saturday on the road against Boston College. A defense that came into the game leading the ACC in rush defense gave up 429 yards rushing against the Eagles, who lead the ACC in rushing yards. The way the defense played gave NC State no chance of winning its first road game of the season.
The NC State football team (4-3, 1-2 ACC) lost in an embarrassing fashion against Boston College (4-3, 2-2 ACC), 24-45. The offense began the game slowly behind redshirt sophomore Bailey Hockman, but seemed to find its groove when redshirt freshman Devin Leary was subbed into the game. Despite this, it was too late for the Pack to make any sort of comeback, and the defense’s failure to contain the run led to a hard loss, while the offense continued to fail to make impact plays early on. Here is how each offensive group graded out in the game.
