Backup Beck, NC State drive past William & Mary

Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Backup quarterback Harrison Beck threw two touchdown passes, and North Carolina State beat William & Mary 34-24 Saturday for its first win of the season.

Beck replaced Daniel Evans late in the second quarter and completed 17-of-25 passes for 246 yards for the Wolfpack (1-1). His 22-yard scoring strike to Jarvis Williams with 33 seconds left in the second quarter gave N.C. State a 14-0 lead.

Beck's 1-yard touchdown pass to George Bryan -- set up by T.J. Graham's juggling 47-yard catch -- extended the Wolfpack's advantage to 21-3 with 5:18 remaining in the third quarter.

All-CAA quarterback Jake Phillips struggled for Championship Subdivision William & Mary (0-1), completing 15-of-30 passes with a touchdown and two interceptions. His 30-yard scoring strike to D.J. McAulay cut N.C. State's third-quarter lead to 21-10. McAulay caught six passes for 99 yards with two touchdowns.

Andre Brown gave N.C. State a 7-0 lead in the first quarter two plays after Nate Irving's interception gave the Wolfpack possession at the Tribe's 6-yard line. N.C. State, which was blanked 34-0 by South Carolina in its season-opener, hadn't scored in nine quarters.

Both offenses were nonexistent the first 29 minutes, and with the Carter-Finley Stadium crowd beginning to boo Evans, N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien called on Beck.

On Beck's second possession, N.C. State got its initial first down with 1:17 left in the half, and Beck then found Owen Spencer, who caught five passes for 82 yards, on a 22-yard reception on the next play. He followed that with the touchdown pass to Williams, the first of the receiver's career.

Beck, who transferred from Nebraska after the 2005 season, started four games in 2007 before an injury sidelined him. Evans, a graduate student, started for freshman Russell Wilson, who suffered a concussion against South Carolina.

Beck's lone blemish came when Derek Cox intercepted a pass and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown to make the score 34-17.

Curtis Underwood Jr. scored the first touchdown of his career on a 10-yard run and Josh Czajkowski booted two field goals for the Wolfpack.

In the first half, the teams combined for 13 punts, 182 yards of offense and four turnovers, two by each team.

N.C. State capitalized on William & Mary's miscues, scoring 17 points off four turnovers.
