    RALEIGH, N.C. -

    NC State is heavily represented on Phil Steele’s 2010
    Midseason All-ACC Team, with seven players receiving recognition. George
    Bryan, Nate Irving and Russell Wilson picked up first-team distinction,
    Owen Spencer was named second-team and Brandan Bishop, Audie Cole and
    Jarvis Williams landed on the third team.

    Bryan is third on the Wolfpack roster with 20 receptions for the year,
    totaling 240 yards. He has two touchdown grabs, and has caught at least
    one pass in each of the Pack's seven games thus far. Bryan was recently
    named to the Mackey Award midseason watch list and was voted preseason
    All-ACC this summer, after earning first-team all-conference hardware
    last season.

    Irving leads the team in tackles (53) and sacks (4.5 for 24 yards) after
    returning from injuries sustained in a serious car accident prior to
    last season. He has forced two fumbles, and led the team in tackles
    against Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. Irving was named to the Rotary
    Lombardi Award watch list in Aug., and was selected as the Walter Camp
    Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 26.

    Wilson has thrown for 300 or more yards 10 times for his career,
    including six times this season. So far this year he has passed for
    2,124 yards and 18 touchdowns, including scoring strikes to 11 different
    receivers. Wilson has previously been named to preseason watch lists for
    both the Manning and O’Brien awards. He was also named the Manning Award
    Star of the Week following the Cincinnati contest.

    Spencer and Williams have both been named to the Biletnikoff Award watch
    list. Williams is 12th in school history for total career receptions
    with 108, while Spencer stands 15th with 99 catches and ranks fifth in
    receiving yards with 2,053. Spencer’s 34 receptions lead the team this
    year, while Williams’ 27 grabs are second.

    Bishop leads the team with three interceptions and boasts 33 tackles.
    His two picks against Boston College marked the first time since 2005
    that a Wolfpack player has intercepted more than one pass in the same

    Cole has tallied 44 tackles and 7.5 tackles for a loss of 37 yards. He
    has also forced two fumbles and recovered another. He picked up his
    first career interception against UCF and led the team in tackles the
    following week with 12 against Cincinnati. He was named ACC Defensive
    Back of the Week and ACC Player of the Week for that
