Georgia Tech Vs. N.C. State Halftime Score: Aggressive Pack Making Game Of It

What if I told you Tom O'Brien's N.C. State Wolfpack had attempted two more fourth-down conversions than Paul Johnson's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had? It's been that kind of afternoon.

Tech leads, 21-7, despite giving up a 19-play, 81-yard drive in the second quarter. The Pack held the ball for pretty much the entire second quarter, but were kind of enough to do very little with it before Sean Glennon struck Jay Smith to put the Wolfpack on the scoreboard.

Two touchdown dashes by Orwin Smith, a 40-yard catch by Stephen Hill and a nine-yard score by David Sims has been the Jackets offense for the day. Only 176 total yards for Tech, which has to count as a victory for State, considering what Tevin Washington's crew has been able to accomplish so far this year.

But, yeah, 21 points. Could've been 28, too -- a 71-yard touchdown run in the final minute by Roddy Jones was called back due to a blocking penalty on Smith.
