NC State tops Texas Tech to stay undefeated, App State wins at buzzer


RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Aydan White returned one of his two interceptions for an 84-yard touchdown to lead a solid defensive effort that carried North Carolina State’s No. 16 past Texas Tech 27-14 Saturday evening. Texas Tech entered as the Bowl Subdivision’s top passing offense. But NC State’s veteran defense frequently harassed quarterback Donovan Smith and shut down any ground game the Red Raiders tried to muster. Demie Sumo-Karngbaye scored two touchdowns as the Wolfpack improved to 3-0. Smith ran and threw to score points to lead the Red Raiders, who had gone 2-0 under first-year coach Joey McGuire.

BOONE, NC (AP) — Chase Brice fired a 53-yard bomb that found Christan Horn’s hands off the point for the game-winning touchdown on the final play of the game and Appalachian State cruised to a 32-28 victory over Troy in a Sun Belt Conference Opening. Brice led Appalachian State (2-1) downfield before an incomplete throw on fourth base from the 2-yard line with 1:13 left in the game. Appalachian State tackled Gunnar Watson on first down for a safety within 28-26 and took over on its own 47-yard line with 15 seconds left after kickoff. Brice’s winning throw came in the fourth and 10th.

DURHAM, NC (AP) — Riley Leonard threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more as Duke continued its strong start to the season by beating North Carolina A&T 49-20. Duke is 3-0 for the first time since 2018. Leonard completed 11 of 12 passes for 155 yards — all in the first half — to go with a team-high 66 yards on five carries. Leonard completed his first 11 passes before being intercepted by Avalion Cole on his last pitch late in the first half. NC A&T (0-3) scored Andrew Brown on field goals for 21 and 41 yards in the first half.

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (AP) — Liberty scored with about a minute left, but No. 19 Wake Forest stopped CJ Yarbrough’s two-point conversion attempt several yards from the goal line for a narrow 37-36 home win. The Demon Deacons’ ground game was ineffective, gaining 21 yards on 26 attempts. So they turned to defense and a passing game, with quarterback Sam Hartman throwing for 325 yards and three touchdowns. Wake Forest remains undefeated. Liberty shot within a point on that fourth 18-yard touchdown from Demario Douglas.
