Last-place UVa routs NC State 33-6 for 1st ACC win
VIRGINIA 33, NC STATE 6

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- When Virginia wasn't taking the ball from
Mike Glennon, the Cavaliers were throwing him to the turf.



Their defense forced five turnovers - after getting just four in
the previous eight games - and six sacks in a 33-6 rout of North
Carolina State on Saturday that snapped a six-game losing
streak.



"We could've said, `Screw it,' but we didn't," defensive end
Jake Snyder said. "We hung in there and felt that this was the
most important game for us."



Phillip Sims ran for one touchdown and threw for another, and
Kevin Parks rushed for 115 yards and a late 31-yard touchdown
for the Cavaliers (3-6, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference).



The defense held N.C. State to 19 yards rushing with three
interceptions, two fumble recoveries and a safety. It sacked
Glennon five times and his backup once.



"Our guys played fast and excited," coach Mike London said.
"When we play like that, we are a good team."



And not to be outdone, the offense rolled up 446 total yards.
Sims was 8 of 10 for 115 yards with a 38-yard touchdown pass to
Tim Smith and a 1-yard TD run that started the scoring for
Virginia. Backup Michael Rocco added an 18-yard touchdown pass
to Darius Jennings.



Glennon finished 23 of 46 for a season-low 197 yards with four
turnovers - three interceptions and a fumble. The Wolfpack (5-4,
2-3) has 19 turnovers in their four losses.



"Give them credit. They came out to play, and they beat us,"
Glennon said. "Obviously, a frustrating day, but we'll just have
to move on."



His 2-yard touchdown pass to Mario Carter with 6:30 left helped
N.C. State avoid its first home shutout since it lost 37-0 to
Maryland in 2007.



The Virginia defense was dominant all day, especially on the
safety that led to a 16-0 lead shortly before halftime. Will
Hill wrapped up Glennon in the end zone as he intentionally
spiked the ball into the turf with 3:17 before the break.



Virginia extended its lead to 23-0 on its first possession of
the second half, when Smith got behind Dontae Johnson, and Sims
found him in the end zone. Drew Jarrett kicked a 33-yard field
goal on the second play of the fourth to make it 26-0. Parks
then broke his long touchdown run with 4:28 left.



This one could have been even worse had Virginia not blown a
golden opportunity moments before halftime.



Jake Snyder recovered Glennon's fumble at the Wolfpack 19 with
38 seconds left. Virginia lined up to go for it on
fourth-and-goal from the 1, but receiver Jake McGee was called
for a false start, and Ian Frye pushed a 22-yard field-goal
attempt wide right.



N.C. State's previous four games each came down to the final
minute. This one was over much sooner.



The Cavaliers jumped on N.C. State early, scoring on their first
offensive series and leading 14-0 after one quarter. That turned
out to be a bad omen for a slow-starting N.C. State team that
fell behind by multiple scores in the first quarters of each of
its previous three losses.



"They definitely used their off week to a good advantage, went
after us and we didn't respond," N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien
said. "That's on me, and I've got to get it corrected and make
sure this football team does what it has to do to win football
games."



Sims led the Cavaliers methodically downfield on their first
drive and capped it by scoring on a rollout from 1 yard less
than 5 minutes in. It came two plays after he dropped a
sure-thing touchdown pass from tailback Perry Jones in the end
zone on a trick play, then crumpled to the grass in
embarrassment.



"It was important for us to score to show that we could move the
ball," London said.



Two series later, it was Rocco's turn to lead a scoring drive.
He found a wide-open Jennings at the left pylon to give Virginia
its first two-score lead since Sept. 29 against Louisiana Tech.
