RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Mike Glennon threw two touchdown passes while Tobais Palmer returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score to help North Carolina State beat Wake Forest 37-6 on Saturday and secure bowl eligibility.
Logan Winkles and Asa Watson each had TD catches for the Wolfpack (6-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Tony Creecy also ran for a 1-yard touchdown for the game's first score as N.C. State jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the opening quarter.
Palmer then opened the second half with his end-zone-to-end-zone return, tied for longest in school history, to blow the game open and ensure the Wolfpack would remain in firm control.
Michael Campanaro threw a touchdown pass on a miserable afternoon for the Demon Deacons (5-5, 3-5), who also needed a win to become bowl eligible. But the Wolfpack dominated up front, sacking Tanner Price five times and holding the Demon Deacons to 185 total yards.
