TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — North Carolina State finally has a statement win in Dave Doeren's fifth year as coach.
The Wolfpack broke a 10-game losing streak to ranked teams Saturday, defeating No. 12 Florida State 27-21. It is Doeren's first victory in nine attempts since he took over in 2013.
"We beat a lot of teams that people think we should beat, and knocked on the door with a ton of teams and didn't finish. Now we finished," Doeren said after his team improved to 3-1 and 1-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. "If you want to be in the conversation you have to win games like today."
