N.C. State had chances to swing the momentum in its favor against Tennessee on Friday night . After falling to a 22-0 deficit early in the game, the Wolfpack trimmed it down to 22-14 before the half. But eventually, it was turnovers and a lack of pressure on the opposing quarterback that kept the Pack from winning this game.
Check out some analysis from Backing the Pack here:
Turnovers are an important barometer for State; it was +2.25 in turnover margin in wins a year ago and -0.8 in losses. Another key for the Pack is getting pressure on the quarterback, but Bray spent the night comfortably picking apart the secondary from the pocket, getting sacked just once for a 3-yard loss. Tennessee only managed one sack of its own -- the 18-yard loss that led to a safety -- but its rush did enough to hurry Glennon all night.
