Date:

NC State senior edge rusher Bradley Chubb is now up to 14 tackles for loss on the season, including six sacks.

Chubb dealt with a gruesome finger injury near halftime, as his hand was able to momentarily point in two different directions. Chubb is the rare senior who might be the nation's top defensive player and pass rusher. Disruption is vital for NFL teams. We are excited to watch him the rest of the season and during the draft process.

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley completed 14 of 25 attempts for 198 yards and one touchdown in the school's 35-17 win on Saturday over Pitt.

The quarterback has not thrown an interception in seven games. Finley produced an outstanding performance against Louisville but wasn't needed in this win. His touchdown pass was a short throw on third down after rolling right and hitting his receiver in the endzone.

NC State junior RB Nyheim Hines rushed for 135 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries in the school's 35-17 win over Pitt on Saturday.

Hines exploded through great blocking and kept his balance on a low hit to score on an 83-yard touchdown run. It was a great team and individual effort. This is his third straight 100-plus yard rushing game.
Oct 14 - 3:48 PM

NC State redshirt junior T Will Richardson has been on the field for all 244 offensive snaps over the past three games.

Richardson (6'6/303) was suspended for the first two games of the season due to an off-field issue from the spring. Since coming back, he has been brilliant. In NC State's last three contests starting at right tackle, the redshirt junior has not allowed a sack or a quarterback hurry -- a huge factor in NC State's 5-1 open to the season. They'll try for their sixth win against Pitt on Saturday.
Oct 10 - 7:40 PM

NC State redshirt junior WR Stephen Louis caught three passes for 99 yards in a 39-25 victory over Louisville on Thursday.

Louis (6'2/217) came one yard away from having his first 100 yard game of the season. He has been a solid third option for the Wolfpack all season, catching 25 passes for 352 yards and two scores in the first six games of the season.

NC State senior edge rusher Bradley Chubb had a sack, two tackles for loss and two hurries in the Wolfpack's 39-25 victory over Louisville on Thursday.

Chubb (6'4/260) was once impressive rushing the passer, and if he wasn't facing the slipperiest quarterback in football in Lamar Jackson, he probably could have had a sack or two more. Chubb is assuredly one of the best edge defenders in the 2018 draft class, and while likely wreak havoc against the Pitt offensive line next.
Oct 6 - 12:40 AM

North Carolina State junior OL Garrett Bradbury left Thursday's 39-25 win over Louisville with a chest injury, but was able to return.

Bradbury went into the locker room and had x-rays taken on his chest, but he was able to return, and he threw a key block on running back Reggie Gallaspy II's touchdown to make it 32-19 Wolfpack with just over ten minutes left in the game.
Oct 6 - 12:34 AM

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley completed 20-of-31 passes for 367 yards and a touchdown in a 39-25 victory over Louisville on Thursday.

Finley also rushed for 19 yards. Very quietly, Finley has put up some of the best numbers of any QB in the ACC, and he was once again impressive against the Louisville defense. His touchdown throw was slightly underthrown, but he gave Kelvin Harmon a chance to make a play on the post and it gave the Wolfpack a 7-0 lead. He didn't find the end zone again, but he made several big plays to Garton and tight end Jaylen Samuels to set up scores. Perhaps most impressively, Finley still hasn't thrown an interception yet. Another strong game should come next week when NC State travels to Pitt.
Oct 6 - 12:23 AM

NC State sophomore WR Kelvin Harmon caught six passes for 133 yards and a touchdown in a 39-25 victory over Louisville on Thursday.

Harmon (6'3/190) was once again QB Ryan Finley's favorite wideout target, and he rewarded him with another big day. It's the third time this year the sophomore has gone over 100 yards, and his touchdown was a 48-yard score where he adjusted to a slightly underthrown football from Finley and carried a tackler in the end zone. This is one of the more underrated wideouts in the ACC, if not college football.
Oct 6 - 12:06 AM

NC State senior H-back Jaylen Samuels caught seven passes for 104 yards in a 39-25 upset win over Louisville on Thursday.

Samuels (5'11/236) wasn't able to get in the end zone, but he did have a 79-yard catch, and he was once again able to create mismatches thanks to his speed and flexibility. Most of his catches were for short-yardage outside of that big gain, but he helped keep the chains moving in the upset win. NC State and Samuels get Pitt next week.
Oct 6 - 12:00 AM

North Carolina State junior RB Nyheim Hines accumulated 220 total yards and scored twice in the 39-25 upset win over Louisville on Thursday.

Hines (5'9/197) was everywhere for the Wolfpack, showing impressive burst as a back -- 102 yards on 18 carries -- and as a kick returner, as his 48-yard kick return set up a score for NC State. Both of his scores gave the Wolfpack double-digit leads; an 11-yarder in the first to make it 17-7, and a seven yarder late in the second to make it 24-13. Hines doesn't have prototypical size, but his shiftiness and versatility should allow him to play on Sundays someday.
Oct 5 - 11:56 PM

NC State redshirt junior S Dexter Wright (undisclosed) could see the field in Thursday's game against Louisville.

Wright (6'2/232) has been held out of game-action since suffering an undisclosed injury in the Wolfpack's season-opening loss to South Carolina. NC State HC Dave Doeren said that "our intention (on Thursday) is to have him play on special teams and be able to be in the game (against Louisville) on defense if he looks good." Tim Kidd-Glass and Jarius Morehead have seen the bulk of snaps in Wright's place while he's been on mend from the injury concern.

NC State sophomore WR Kelvin Harmon suffered a minor shoulder injury in Saturday's win over Syracuse.

Harmon (6'3/190) came down on his shoulder in awkward fashion while attempting to haul in a deep pass this past weekend. He missed several snaps after suffering the injury before returning to action. During Monday's press conference, Wolfpack HC Dave Doeren said that the sophomore wideout had suffered a bruise on the play, but is not expected to miss any game action.

NC State redshirt junior WR Stephen Louis caught four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-25 win over Syracuse.

Louis (6'2/217) has caught at least four passes in four of five games for the Wolfpack and has surpassed 50 yards in three contests. Overall, he owns a 22-253-2 receiving line.
Oct 4 - 6:29 PM

NC State senior H-back Jaylen Samuels was named Mel Kiper's "prospect on the rise" after his week five performance against Syracuse.

Samuels (5'11/236) will sometimes get discounted because there's no clear position, but Kiper sees value in his versatility. "Samuels impressed me with his ability as a runner in the Wolfpack's win over Syracuse, showing patience and burst and lowering his shoulder when he needed to," Kiper said. "He has tremendous value in today's NFL, where he'll likely end up at running back." In today's NFL, the ability to have a running back who can block, run the football and catch is very valuable, and it's why Samuels will likely be a highly sought-after player when draft day comes in 2018.
