David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Clemson's Wayne Gallman said "I wanted someone to hurt him" after NC State's Dravious Wright delivered a hit that knocked Gallman unconscious. Gallman said he thought the hit was targeting, but he was told the ACC reviewed the play and said otherwise.

Wayne Gallman says Dravious Wright's hit on him that resulted in a concussion was, in his mind, intentionally dirty. "He led with his helmet," Gallman said. The play did not result in a penalty. Gallman said he was knocked unconscious and does not remember anything until he got back to the training room.

N.C. State nearly toppled Clemson on the road last week, but the Wolfpack might not have much left in the tank after that one. They trail Louisville 17-0 after less than 10 minutes of action and have minus-4 yards of offense to this point. Lamar Jackson has two more touchdowns, giving him 32 on the season and one away from a school record.


Pack can't take advantage of turnover

Louisville's James Quick fumbles, and it's recovered by NC State's Josh Jones in Cardinals territory. The Wolfpack, however, went three-and-out and trail 10-0 on ABC.


Lamar Jackson wastes no time to score

Louisville's Heisman frontrunner ran for a 36-yard TD in the Cards' opening drive against NC State. It's Jackson's FBS-leading 31st total TD of the season.
