NC State deploys trick play to take lead over UNC

North Carolina State entered Friday's matchup with rival North Carolina in need of a win to become bowl eligible. The opportunity to knock UNC out of the race for the ACC Coastal championship only sweetened the pot. 

And what better way to start a rivalry game with high stakes than with a trick play?

Wolfpack tight end Jaylen Samuels caught a pass behind the line of scrimmage, then threw a beautiful deep ball to Stephen Louis for a 59-yard score to take a 7-0 lead on the Tar Heels. 

NC State may have entered the game as a two-score underdog, but early in the second quarter, the Wolfpack had opened up a 21-0 lead in Chapel Hill, and the momentum gained by the first-quarter trick play seemed to only be growing.
