6:33 | 4Q: NC State knocks in a 27 yard FG. They take a 19-17 lead over FSU

11:11 | 4Q: NC State forces a 3 and out. FSU’s offense has been anemic in the 2H. NC State takes over on its own 42.

12:07 | 4Q: NC State began that drive on the 16 yard line going in. Between penalties and simply going backwards, they still gets 3 out of it. 53 yarder is GOOD. FSU leads 17-16. The ‘Noles need some movement on offense this possession.

14:46 | 4Q: Mastromanno looked as if he was going to fake that punt and pick up the first down. Instead, he punts the ball past the line of scrimmage. That penalty carries a loss of down and NC State takes over on FSU’s 16 yard line. Just a humongous penalty and boost for the Pack.
