Raleigh, NC (Sports Network) - Behind 258 yards passing and two touchdowns from Mike Glennon, the NC State Wolfpack became bowl-eligible with a 37-6 win over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in an ACC showdown at Carter-Finley Stadium.

The Wolfpack lit up the scoreboard early in the first quarter following a one- yard touchdown run by Tony Creecy. They made it a 10-0 lead later in the quarter on a Niklas Sade 38-yard field goal.

NC State's lead ballooned even further in the final minute of the opening quarter. Glennon capped off a nine-play, 60-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to Logan Winkles.

Wake Forest reached into its bag of tricks for its only score five minutes into the second quarter when Campanaro tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to Davis. Following a missed PAT, the Deacons trailed, 17-6, heading into halftime.

After a stagnant second quarter, NC State got the jolt of energy it needed at the start of the second half when Tobias Palmer returned the kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown.
