    导出博客文章RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State executed its plan against Wake Forest: get
    a fast start, play from in front, force the Demon Deacons out of what they do
    best.The only hiccup? Penalties -- a lot of them.Still, N.C. State won an
    Atlantic Coast Conference opener under fourth-year coach Dave Doeren for the
    first time, beating Wake Forest 33-16 on Saturday.Ryan Finley threw for 300
    yards and three touchdowns for the Wolfpack (3-1), while Matt Dayes ran for 125
    yards and a score. Dayes 6-yard TD started a run of four straight scoring drives
    by the Wolfpack, who led 17-0 after the first quarter and 23-3 early in the
    second.It was good just for us to hop on them early, said Jaylen Samuels, who
    had a TD catch for the Wolfpack. The offense, we did our job, we started
    fast.The Wolfpack finished with 527 yards against a defense ranked 12th
    nationally against the run and 20th in scoring defense (16.5).We talked about it
    all week: Wakes a team that wants to play a four-quarter game, Doeren said. We
    didnt feel like they were built offensively to catch up. We felt like they were
    built to control the ball, keep their defense off the field and grind you
    out.The biggest flaw? Thirteen penalties for 144 yards, both season highs.John
    Wolford threw for 263 yards and a touchdown for the Demon Deacons (4-1, 1-1),
    who got as close as 26-16 entering the final quarter but never seriously
    threatened to wrestle control away from the Wolfpack.Wake Forest was going for
    its first 5-0 start since 2006, which was also the last time it won in Raleigh
    as part of a surprise run to the ACC title.But the Demon Deacons did themselves
    no favors in the red zone. Twice they settled for field goals, while another
    drive that reached the Wolfpack 23 also stalled and ended with a field
    goal.Wolfords 9-yard throw to Tabari Hines late in the third was the only time
    the Demon Deacons reached the end zone.Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson called it
    a just awful red-zone performance.For us to beat N.C. State, Clawson said, we
    have to score more touchdowns. ... They stopped us when they had to. They are a
    good football team.THE TAKEAWAYWAKE FOREST: The Demon Deacons defense can keep
    them in games, but there are days when the offense has to work awfully hard for
    its production and struggles to dig out of holes. This game only reinforced
    little margin for error Wake Forest has when it falls behind early and Wolford
    -- or injured fellow starter Kendall Hinton -- face steady pressure.N.C. STATE:
    Does N.C. State have a penalty problem or was this one bad outing? The flags
    mounted for things unnecessary roughness and chop blocks -- the kind of things
    that cant happen as the Wolfpack go deeper into ACC play in pursuit of a bowl
    bid.HITTING WOLFORDThe Wolfpack finished with four sacks and has nine in the
    past two games dating to a win against Old Dominion before last weeks
    bye.ONE-SIDED OF LATEThis marked the third straight season that the Wolfpack
    beat the Demon Deacons by double-digit margins. Two years ago, N.C. State won
    42-13 here. Last year, the Wolfpack scored four 50-yard touchdowns in a
    put-the-game-away opening quarter of a 35-17 road win.HINES BIG DAYHines, a
    sophomore from Florence, South Carolina, entered with eight catches for 101
    yards this year. He finished career highs of nine catches for 125 yards in this
    one.PROTESTTwo members of N.C. States band took a knee on the field and didnt
    play during the national anthem.UP NEXTWAKE FOREST: The Demon Deacons stay in
    Atlantic Division play by hosting Syracuse, who has won four straight meetings
    dating to the 2011 season.N.C. STATE: N.C. State hosts Notre Dame in the second
    meeting between the schools, the other one coming in the Gator Bowl to end the
    2002 season when Philip Rivers was the Wolfpack quarterback.---Follow Aaron
