NC State was so close on multiple opportunities to claw its way back into the game on Saturday night against Clemson, but ultimately fell 30-20 in Death Valley. The Wolfpack's offense was anemic in the second half, leading to State's defense getting picked apart by Clemson.

Cory and Michael take a look back on what went wrong at Memorial Stadium, who to place the blame on for the offense, the Pack's defensive performance and look ahead to the next few weeks in the Postgame Podcast.
