Sixteen plays, 70 yards, nearly 10 minutes of possession, three points.
Not exactly your dream drive chart, but better than nothing for the Cardinals, who had Mario Urrutia wide open for a TD, but Brian Brohm put too much on the pass in the red zone.
Still, the offense put some points on the board, and that was important after a second stop by the defense. N.C. State threw all over the Cards, but Johnny Patrick’s interception in the end zone kept the shutout going.
Cards up 10-0 with 6:40 left in the first half, N.C. State taking over at its own 23.
