Not only did NC State need a win on Saturday against Louisville, it needed its new-look defense to step up in a big way. Cory Smith breaks down the game and why the defense was a catalyst all night long for the Wolfpack along with a look at the offense's resurgence in the fourth quarter.

Cory rides solo in this podcast and also takes a look at Devin Leary's huge night, Drake Thomas embodying Isaiah Moore and hands out game balls on both sides of the ball!
