North Carolina State 10, Connecticut 7: Mike Glennon threw for 204 yards and a touchdown and his defense registered four takeaways as the visiting Wolfpack edged the Huskies.

Glennon connected with Bryan Underwood for a 46-yard scoring strike with 8:34 left in the third quarter for a 10-0 lead. 

Defensive back Earl Wolff had a fumble recovery and an interception for N.C. State (1-1). David Amerson, the nation’s interception leader in 2011, and Brandan Bishop also had interceptions for the Wolfpack.

Lyle McCombs ran 5 yards for a score with seven minutes remaining in the game, bringing the Huskies (1-1) within 10-7. McCombs set up the score by taking a swing pass 43 yards.
