EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Mike Glennon threw a 46-yard third-quarter touchdown to receiver Bryan Underwood and North Carolina State held on to beat Connecticut 10-7 on Saturday.

Glennon and UConn quarterback Chandler Whitmer each threw for 204 yards. But Whitmer also had three passes intercepted as the Wolfpack (1-1) forced four Huskies turnovers.

All-America cornerback David Amerson, burned deep twice in N.C. State's season-opening loss to Tennessee, recorded his 14th career interception and knocked away a fourth-down pass on Connecticut's final drive to secure the win.

Glennon completed 15 of his 30 passes but was sacked six times. N.C. State had just 258 yards of offense but held the Huskies (1-1) to 239.

UConn's Lyle McCombs rushed for 60 yards and caught a 43-yard swing pass that set up his 5-yard fourth-quarter touchdown run.
