Despite all of the things that didn't go in NC State's direction on Saturday night in Winston-Salem, it still had opportunities to win the game down the stretch. Michael and Cory take a look back on the loss, how those opportunities were squandered and what comes next for the Wolfpack after the 45-42 loss to Wake Forest.

Why didn't the offense get going early on? Why did Ricky Person and Zonovan Knight combine for 12 carries? How critical was Shyheim Battle's ejection and the rest of the penalties? We break it all down on the podcast.
