Dayes, NC State defense lead Wolfpack to win over Syracuse

Nov 13, 2016, 05:33

Mahoney, who was 1 of 4 for eight yards against the Tigers, quarterbacked the Orange in last year's 42-29 loss at N.C. State while Dungey was out with an injury and passed for 152 yards and two touchdowns.

As the Pack enters this final stretch, the margin of error for bowl eligibility is slim with only three remaining games, two of which are away including the final game of the season against No. 17 North Carolina.

The Orange will return to the field next Saturday when they host Florida State on Senior Day. Dayes scored on runs of 7, 20, and 13 yards. Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey, third in the league with 2,679 yards passing, goes against the ACC's 10th-ranked pass defense.

Dungey was injured last week in the Clemson game, and his status for Saturday is still uncertain.

The Pack had 544 yards in total offense and converted 10 of 18 third-down plays, finishing with more than 41 minutes in possession time. But Doeren said that the team is preparing for either eventuality. But after a three-and-out series by the Pack, Mahoney went deep on the first play of the next possession and the Pack's Jack Tocho came down with an interception on the sideline throw.

As for the Wolfpack offense, it will need to execute properly as well and continue to play at a high level.

So far this season, Eric Dungey is still the top thrower for the Orange, with a 230-of-355 line for 2679 yards and a 15:7 TD:INT mark, while Dontae Strickland is tops in the rush with 120 carries for 456 yards and two touchdowns.

"Defensively, they blitz a lot", Doeren said. SU punted three plays later. In a game where Dungey may or may not play, the ability for the Wolfpack to possibly rattle whoever is in his place will be a major factor in determining the outcome.

Syracuse's inability to sustain drives on offense forced the defense to be on the field longer than normal.

The Swede ended the longest goal drought of his career on Sunday when he scored twice in United's 3-1 victory away to Swansea City.

ZERO: The Syracuse rushing attack was practically non-existent with three backs combining for only 69 yards, allowing the NCSU defense to key on the SU passing game, limiting Mahoney's options in key second half situations. "It's really important for us to win the next two".

"I think Syracuse lets up around 200 yards rushing a game, so we definitely know that Matt Dayes can get at least 169 [yards]", Adams said.

"Now we can't miss a pitch", Babers said postgame. According to ESPN, the Wolfpack had a 90.2 percent chance of winning this game.

Georgia Tech (5-4, 2-4) at No. 23 Virginia Tech (7-2, 5-1), 3:30 p.m. (ESPNU): With North Carolina's loss to Duke on Thursday, the Hokies need only one more victory, against either the Yellow Jackets or Virginia on November 26, to win the Coastal Division title and advance to the ACC championship game for the first time since 2011.

But the difference is this time has a spark that can be ignited at any moment and the game was set alight in the 27th minute. Three is enough, I think. "A lot of the pundits and press will big up that we're conceding too many goals", said Henderson.
