How to handle FSU's defense

It wasn't as if the ACC coordinators didn't do their homework.

"We had prepared for all of it," Rudolph said.

So did NC State. Didn't help. The Pack lost 49-17.

"You play a team -- even a highly successful defense -- and there's normally an area you want to try and go attack against that team, and they really don't have that glaring weakness," said NC State offensive coordinator Matt Canada. "They are a very sound defense. You go in knowing it's going to be a challenging day. You're going to try and run the plays you feel go against their scheme the best, you're going to hope the ball bounces your way a little bit. Obviously for a lot of people, not just us, that didn't occur."

Auburn will take the last shot at a different result.
