The North Carolina State Wolfpack missed their third makeable field goal of Saturday at the exact wrong time, but survived anyway with a 27-21 overtime win over the No. 9 Clemson Tigers in Raleigh on Saturday
It was the first Top 10 win for the Wolfpack since 2012, and breaks a streak of 36-straight wins for the Tigers against unranked opponents.

Wolfpack quarterback Devin Leary played himself right into the national conversation with a 32-44 for 238 yards and four touchdowns performance. The struggles of Trevor Lawrence’s replacement DJ Uiagalelei continue, as he was just 12-26 for 111 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
