Signature moment so far: NC State

The context provided by the next two months would undercut some of the win's impressiveness, but when NC State knocked off Florida State in Week 4, it certainly felt like a program-defining victory.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

NC State coach Dave Doeren on the strong finish last year that allowed him to stay and lead the Wolfpack to a Top 25 ranking: "We found a way to win three of our last four and a bowl game. Had we not finished that way I don't know if I'd be on the phone. I'm glad we were able to finish the way we did so the administration would allow us to continue our work." The goal is to get to 7-1 in ACC play, something that's never been done at NC State.
