While the Tigers were rewriting their record book, the Wolfpack was making some dents in its own.

Senior wide receiver Tobais Palmer set new school and ACC records for all-purpose yards with 496. His total included 277 on kickoff returns - six yards shy of the conference record - and 219 receiving yards.

Senior quarterback Mike Glennon threw for a career-best 493 yards. Glennon tied a school record by throwing five touchdown passes.

First-team year freshman Shadrach Thornton went over the 100-yard mark in rushing for the third straight game.

State's 48 points were the most ever in a Wolfpack loss.

Senior safety Earl Wolff tied a career record with 18 tackles.
