This just in: It's a day for defenses

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Just got the third quarter stats handed to me in the press box, and yes, it is that bad:

  • NC State has 79 yards of total offense through three quarters.

  • Both teams are 4-of-11 on third-down conversions.

  • South Carolina is 1-of-3 in red zone opportunities.

  • NC State has three first downs -- three!

  • Russell Wilson has been sacked five times (but he's still standing).

You get the idea.
