Raleigh, N.C. - Following two of the most dramatic plays of the season for Wolfpack football, NC State's Brian Clark and Garland Heath were recognized by the ACC for their outstanding individual performances this past week.

Clark set a career high with 148 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown reception late in the fourth quarter to put NC State ahead to stay. Heath had perhaps the team's top play of the year thus far when he intercepted a pass in the endzone on a first-and-goal as the Wolfpack snuck past the Yellow Jackets 17-14 on Thursday, Oct. 6 on ESPN. Clark was named the ACC Co-Offensive Back, while Heath was tabbed as the ACC Defensive Back of the Week.

NC State will host Clemson this Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7:45 pm on ESPN in Carter-Finley Stadium.

CO-OFFENSIVE BACK
Clark caught four passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns in the Wolfpack's 17-14 win over Georgia Tech on Thursday. The Tampa, Fla., senior caught a 40-yard touchdown pass to put NC State up 7-0 in the first quarter, and added a career-long 80-yard scoring catch in the fourth quarter to put NC State ahead to stay.

DEFENSIVE BACK
NC State safety Garland Heath had eight tackles, broke up a pass and had a game-saving interception in the end zone in the Wolfpack's 17-14 win over Georgia Tech on Thursday. Heath, a junior from Belle Glades, Fla., was on the field for 80 of Georgia Tech's 91 plays on the evening, and with the game on the line in the closing seconds, came up with a crucial interception with 26 seconds left to play to preserve NC State's lead.
