North Carolina State didn’t quit on the season when things looked bleakest. The Wolfpack refused to give up on the finale, either.
Trailing the ACC’s worst team by four touchdowns, N.C. State came up with the biggest rally in school history — and all but assured itself of one more game. Mike Glennon threw for a career-high five touchdowns, ran for another score and helped North Carolina State come back from 27 points down in the second half to beat Maryland 56-41 on Saturday.
James Washington ran 1 yard for the go-ahead score with 7:08 left for the Wolfpack (7-5, 4-4 ACC), who trailed 41-14 with 6 minutes left in the third quarter before scoring six straight times they touched the ball during the second-biggest comeback ACC history — and a victory that might have been more shocking than last week’s upset of Clemson.
