Wolfpack aims to continue dominating UNC at line


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — For the past two years, North Carolina State has beaten up North Carolina's offensive line and quarterbacks.

N.C. State has racked up 11 sacks and held the Tar Heels to minus-4 yards rushing in the past two meetings heading into Saturday's renewal of the long and heated rivalry. This time, the Wolfpack brings one of the nation's best pass rushes to Chapel Hill while the Tar Heels have been among the nation's best at protecting quarterback Bryn Renner.

N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien says the Tar Heels have "the best offensive line we're going to play against this year." That line has allowed just five sacks all year.

But the Wolfpack leads the league and ranks tied for eighth nationally in sacks, averaging more than three times per game.
