N.C. State Vs. Cincinnati Score Updates: Touchdown Follows Wonderful Punt

N.C. State Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien, known for enjoying conventional things, has an affection for a punt punted well. State booted one from the Cincinnati Bearcats' 41-yard line, a profoundly conservative activity, but weren't able to down the ball as it dribbled along the one-yard line despite there being a four-man Wolfpack wolfpack surrounding the ball.

But then. Ohhhh, then. Cincinnati's Pat O'Donnell walloped a 76-yard punt that pinned the Pack deep in their own territory. A Sean Glennon interception followed, which led to a two-yard Isaiah Pead touchdown on a pitch from Zach Collaros. Cincy leads, 7-0.

I've spent a lot of time talking about punting. It really was a great punt, and there's no coach in America who would appreciate it more than O'Brien, be it an enemy punt or not.
