The official word from NC State's sports information department on the Pack's 56-41 victory over Maryland earlier today:
- The Pack’s comeback from 27 points ranks as the greatest comeback in school history. The previous mark was when NC State came from 24 down to defeat Minnesota in the 2000 Micronpc.com Bowl.
- The comeback also ranks as the second-highest in an ACC conference game. Clemson came back from 28-0 against Virginia to win 29-28 in 1992.
- Quarterback Mike Glennon had a career day, as he tied two NC State school records. He tied the school record for touchdown responsibility as he threw for five TDs and ran for another. Philip Rivers in 2002 against Navy is the only other Pack player to total six touchdowns in a game. Glennon tied the school record with five touchdown passes on the day. Glennon is the fifth NC State player to throw five in a game, the last was Russell Wilson against Florida State in 2009.
