RALEIGH, N.C. -- In NC State's 21-17 win over Wake Forest, the Wolfpack set a record for the longest stretch of games with only two or fewer total turnovers in school history (dating back to 1959).

  • The Coca-Cola Wolfpack Football Toys For Tots Drive netted donations of more than 17,000 dollars in cash and over 3,100 toys. The money collected was more than last season, while double the amount of toys collected.

  • Russell Wilson extended his streak of consecutive attempts without an interception to 175. That mark ranks second in school history behind Jamie Barnette’s 179 straight in 1998.

  • Quarterback Russell Wilson scored his third rushing touchdown of the season on a four-yard run in the second quarter. He ran for 69 yards on the day.

  • Wilson also has thrown multiple touchdowns in four straight games, the first time a Wolfpack signal caller has done that since Philip Rivers had a streak of five straight games in 2003.

  • NC State had just one turnover – a Wilson fumble – in the contest. Over the last five games, NC State has just two turnovers, both fumbles. That is the longest stretch of games with only two or fewer total turnovers in school history (dating back to 1959).

  • NC State has now scored on its opening drive in four straight games.

  • George Bryan touchdown catch was his third of the season and it gave NC State an early 7-0 lead.

  • Redshirt sophomore defensive end Audi Augustin notched his first career sack late in the fourth quarter on Wake’s final drive to force a fourth and seven.

  • Wake converted that fourth down conversion on the drive, but was later stuffed on a 4th-and-6 after Alan-Michael Cash stopped Wake’s quarterback on the Deacon’s final play of the game. Over the last two contests, NC State has held its opponents to 1-of-7 on fourth down conversions.

  • Anthony Hill s touchdown catch was his third of the season on just 13 catches. Coming into this season, Hill had just one touchdown to go with his 61 career receptions.
