NC State moved to 4-1 on the season with a 31-20 win over Duke to win a second straight home game, but it came at a cost. Cory and Michael take a look back on the in-state win, including a look at the impact of Devin Leary's injury and a breakdown of the defense stepping up in the second half.

What does Saturday's win mean for the program with a tough stretch coming up? Will Bailey Hockman remain the starter, or is Ben Finley set to get playing time? Just how good has this defense become -- when it's not dealing with self-inflicted penalties?
