N.C. State puts an end to Marshall’s streak at nine

Morris throws four TD passes vs. Herd


In his first start of the season, MJ Morris threw a career-best four touchdown passes as North Carolina State topped Marshall 48-41 Saturday afternoon in Raleigh.

Morris, a sophomore, completed 17 of 32 passes for 265 yards. He threw three intercepti­ons – including two in the first quarter – but settled into the game and put N.C. State (4-2) into a position to win. He got the starting job when former Virginia star Brennan Armstrong was benched after the previous week’s loss to Louisville.

Marshall (4-1) saw its ninegame win streak that dated to last season snapped. Cam Fancher led the Thundering Herd with a season-high 315 passing yards and four touchdowns – two passing and two rushing.

The clash was a fast-paced shootout that featured six lead changes. When the dust settled, it was the highest scoring game either team had been a part of all season.

Boston College 27, Army 24: Quarterbac­k Thomas Castellano­s ran for his fourth touchdown of the game with 25 seconds left to give the Eagles (3-3) a victory over Army (2-3) in West Point, New York.

Castellano­s rushed for 142 yards and powered the Eagles to an early lead with his three earlier scores, and the last brought them back after Army had controlled much of the second half. After Boston College was stopped on two attempts from inside the 3, Castellano­s kept the ball on third down and ran to his right for the go-ahead score. Bryson Daily ran for 99 yards and threw a touchdown pass for Army.

No. 14 North Carolina 40, Syracuse 7: Drake Maye threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Tar Heels (5-0, 2-0 ACC) breezed past the Orange (4-2, 0-2) in Chapel Hill.

Clemson 17, Wake Forest 12: The host Tigers (4-2, 2-2 ACC) overcame the Demon Deacons (3-2, 0-2). ade Klubnik and Will Shipley ran for touchdowns as coach Dabo Swinney gained a program-record-tying 165th win.
