RALEIGH, N.C. -- In this game a year ago, Florida State and NC State combined for more than 1,000 yards of total offense. Not today. Much of that can be attributed to the improvement of both defenses.
NC State quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked twice on one drive, and NC State's defense responded by forcing FSU to punt -- again. Florida State hasn't even totaled 50 yards yet, but the Noles continue to hurt themselves with penalties. It's much more of a defensive struggle so far than it was a year ago.
