Raleigh, N.C. -
Redshirt defensive tackle Thomas Teal was named the ACC’s Defensive Lineman of the Week after helping the Wolfpack upset No. 3 Florida State, 17-16, Saturday night at Carter-Finley Stadium.
Teal notched six tackles in the win, including two tackles for loss as the Wolfpack held the Seminoles scoreless in the second half. Teal helped the defense hold Florida State to 3-for-15 on third down conversions. NC State also recorded four sacks against the Seminoles, a team that had yielded only six sacks in its previous five games.
Florida State came into the contest averaging 544.4 yards of total offense and 51.0 points a game, but were limited to season-lows 343 yards and 16 points.
The ACC also announced the game time for the October 20 contest at Maryland will be 3:30 p.m. and televised on ESPNU.
