RALEIGH, N.C.  - Niklas Sade's 48-yard field goal with 33 seconds left lifted North Carolina State past Richmond 23-21 on Saturday night.

 

N.C. State freshman Bryant Shirreffs accounted for two touchdowns and Pete Thomas was 24 of 31 for 237 yards while helping the Wolfpack (2-0) rally from an 11-point deficit.

 

The Wolfpack took over at their own 21 with 1:59 left and Thomas led them 48 yards in seven plays.

 

He completed 4 of 5 passes during the drive for 31 yards - including a critical 13-yard throw to Rashard Smith at the sideline - before things stalled at the 31. Sade's kick from the right hash cleared the crossbar with ease.

 

Michael Strauss moved the Spiders (1-1) downfield in the final seconds, but his deep heave with no time left was batted down by Hakim Jones just short of the goal line.
