Surprise -- NC State is winning with its running game. Quarterback Russell Wilson has had a pedestrian first half, and he hasn't had to be a superstar. Rookie running backs Mustafa Greene and Dean Haynes have each rushed for at least 40 yards and a touchdown. It's not easy to win on the road no matter who it's against, and NC State's defense has helped by shutting down UCF on third downs and stopping the run. Keeping the game plan for the second half should help the Pack take another step forward.
