NC State responded later in the frame when Mitchell capped a 14-play, 76-yard drive with a four-yard TD pass to Tony Creecy, knotting the score at 7-7 at the end of one period of play.

The Pirates then rattled off four straight touchdowns, two each in the second and third quarters. The run began with a five-yard TD pass between Carden and Bryce Williams, followed by a three-yard scoring run by Carden to make the score 21-7 at the break.

Carden began the scoring in the third when he crossed the goal line from a yard out at the 8:23 mark, while Breon Allen produced a three-yard TD run of his own to make the score 35-7.
