2014 ACRC Bowl Series: Texas State vs North Carolina State

Friday November 21, 2014 - 12:00 AM
November 21, 2014 - 7:30PM @ ACRC Bowl Series @ Rugby Athletic Center

What started as a defensive battle for much of the first half turned into a rout as North Carolina State surged to a 63-7 win over the Renegades of Texas State.  

NC State's Thompson Teagle broke up a scoreless game with less than 20 minutes to go in the first half. The Wolfpack's disciplined front line stymied the Renegades again and again in the second frame as possession frequently turned in NC State's favor, allowing for several dramatic breakaway runs down the field late in the game.

Standout scorers for the Wolfpack included Adam Hockaday and Garrett Murphy with two tries apiece.  


Texas State comes to the ACRC Bowl Series after posting a 3-2 conference record in the highly competitive Southwest Rugby Conference. The Renegades have won three Texas Division Titles sin 2008 and been ranked as high as 4th in the nation. N.C. State is a team on the rise, posting a 4-2 record in the Atlantic Coast Rugby League this fall will big wins over North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

Both teams come to Charlotte with momentum and much to prove. Expect an excellent match on Friday between these two marquee programs.
