Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS -

RALEIGH, N.C. — Wake For­est did it again. This time at N.C. State.

Jack Freuden­thal’s 32-yard touch­down catch with 30 sec­onds left lifted the De­mon Dea­cons to a 27-23 up­set of No. 14 N.C. State on Thurs­day night.

The De­mon Dea­cons (5-5, 2-5 ACC) won for only the sec­ond time in Raleigh since 1986 af­ter trail­ing nearly the whole game. N.C. State (6-3, 3-3) couldn’t pro­tect a 23-20 lead with 1:39 left.

Wake For­est got the ball back, af­ter a de­fen­sive stop, and sopho­more quar­ter­back Jamie New­man led an 80-yard play in 69 sec­onds. New­man, in his first start, threw for 297 yards and a touch­down.

N.C. State got 15 catches and 134 yards from re­ceiver Kelvin Har­mon but kept set­tling for field goals. Fresh­man kicker Chris Dunn made three field goals but the red-zone prob­lems cost the Wolf­pack in the end.

N.C. State lost a heart-breaker last year in Win­ston-Salem, 30-24.
