Russell Wilson Again Shines in NC State Win

If you aren’t watching North Carolina State’s Russell Wilson on television you are missing out.

This guy can play quarterback. He was very good again today as the Pack defeated Georgia Tech 45-28 in Atlanta.

Wilson was the biggest reason North Carolina State moved to 4-0 on the season and 1-0in the ACC. He threw for three touchdowns and totaled 368 yards on a 28-for-41 passing day. He also tallied a rushing touchdown. Wilson’s only big mistake was throwing an interception that resulted in a Georgia Tech touchdown.

Wilson’s physical talents were again apparent but I like this guy’s leadership. When Georgia Tech seized the momentum in the second half, the redshirt junior responded like a winner does.

This guy should be the early front-runner for ACC Player-of-the-Year. Plus, Wilson has now positioned the Pack to make some serious noise in the conference race. Pre-season predictions didn’t give the Pack much of a chance, but with a high-scoring offense and a decent defense, North Carolina State is a surprise.

Look for the Pack to soon move into the Top 25. If Wilson stays healthy, the prizes could become larger.
