AWASH IN RED: Wolfpack backs its taunts, whips Heels

Jacoby Brissett and Shadrach Thornton each ran for touchdowns in huge rushing performances while N.C. State's defense overwhelmed rival North Carolina in a 35-7 win Saturday.

Brissett ran for a career-best 167 yards while Thornton ran for 161 more for the Wolfpack (7-5, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), part of a 388-yard ground game that set a physical tone from the outset.

Brissett threw just 11 passes, through three went for short touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Wolfpack's defensive front mauled the Tar Heels (6-6, 4-4) in a surprisingly one-sided performance against an offense that had been rolling coming into the game.

UNC finished with 207 total yards, 30 on the ground, and didn't score until getting a meaningless touchdown with 1:48 left.

Tar Heels wary of Brissett, Wolfpack

North Carolina will taste a different flavor of rivalry today when it hosts N.C. State in its season finale Saturday (12:30 p.m., WRAL). The Tar Heels (6-5, 4-3 ACC) for years played Duke to wrap up the season but that’s no longer the case as the ACC has shaken up the schedule and UNC will close out with its other neighbor, the Wolfpack (6-5, 2-5), for the first time since 2009.
