What Dave Doeren said after NC State’s win over Boston College

A 50-yard Nyheim Hines touchdown run with 8:22 left in regulation was the difference as NC State held on for a 17-14 win on the road at Boston College.

Points were somewhat at a premium in this one as the Wolfpack held a 10-7 lead at the halftime break. But a Jaylen Samuels fumble in NC State territory gave the Eagles a short field, taking a 14-10 lead late in the 3rd after a Thadd Smith 12-yard run. After the teams exchanged punts to start the 4th quarter, NC State would strike paydirt as Hines broke off his big scoring run to give the Wolfpack the lead for good. Their defense held as the Eagles turned it over on downs on back-to-back drives and saw a last-gasp series of laterals end up unsuccessful to end the game.

It was a historic day for Bradley Chubb as he became the program’s all-time leader in sacks with 26, breaking Mario Williams’ record in the 3rd quarter.

Kyle Bambard did miss three field goals from 56, 36 and 37 yards out, an area of concern coach Dave Doeren brought up after the game. Bambard could have made it a more comfortable margin for the Wolfpack had he at least made the ones inside 40 yards.

Here’s what Doeren said after his team improved to 7-3 with the win:
