Recap: Connecticut vs. NC State

Hartford, CT (Sports Network) - The NC State Wolfpack rode a solid defensive effort to a 10-7 victory over Connecticut in a non-conference tilt at Rentschler Stadium.

Mike Glennon overcame six sacks to throw for 204 yards and a touchdown, helping the Wolfpack (1-1) rebound from last week's loss to Tennessee.

Chandler Whitmer had a tough day under center for the Huskies (1-1), as he completed just 15-of-27 passes and was intercepted three times, while also taking three sacks.

Wolfpack kicker Niklas Sade accounted for the only points of the first half with a 40-yard field goal late in the second quarter.

NC State extended its lead to 10-0 midway through the third quarter, as Glennon hooked up with Bryan Underwood for a 46-yard scoring strike.

UConn finally got on the scoreboard at the 7:00 mark of the fourth quarter, when Lyle McCombs found pay dirt on a five-yard run. The Huskies got the ball back once more at their own 27-yard line with 3:17 remaining but were unable to cross midfield.

NC State's defense forced four turnovers for the game and held UConn to 2- of-12 on third down, atoning for a lackluster day by the Wolfpack offense.
