Default (24) North Carolina State 39 (17) Louisville 25
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Nyheim Hines ran for two touchdowns and Ryan Finley threw for another to help No. 24 North Carolina State beat No. 17 Louisville 39-25 on Thursday night.

Hines ran for 102 yards and had a 48-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter that helped set up a touchdown drive for the Wolfpack (5-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Finley threw for 367 yards and a 48-yard score to Kelvin Harmon, part of N.C. State's 520 total yards on a night it never trailed against the Cardinals (4-2, 1-2).

Then there was the Wolfpack's defensive front, which kept the pressure on reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.

"They don't want to be denied what they feel is theirs right now," Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. "There's no flinch in these guys, I can tell you that."

Jackson ran for his second touchdown to pull the Cardinals to 32-25 with 4:10 left, then got the ball back with a chance to tie it. But linebacker Germaine Pratt picked up a deflected pass and returned it 25 yards - blasting through an attempted tackle by Jackson near the goal line - for a clinching score with 2:52 left.

"We've got a lot of work to do," Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino said. "I'm not getting it done. I've got to do a better job with our coaches, do a better job with our players and get back on the right track."

Their regression is just mind blowing to me. They have the scariest player in the country to play against and still can't figure out a way to get it done. People brag on Petrino 24/7 about being a football genius. What is his excuse here?

Louisvilles problem is nothing more than petrinos difficulty recruiting like he use to after the scandal broke.
Their other big problem is the inability to hire quality coordinators.

^Recruiting and offensive line or getting a quality oLine coach would be a gear first step.
