A 1-yard touchdown catch by Samuels, on fourth down, pulled N.C. State within 35-28 with 12:21 left in the fourth quarter. The junior completed 27 of 34 passes in the first half for 296 yards.

Bentley ended up 17 of 29 for 215 yards.

Samuel led the Gamecocks with 59 receptions and 783 yards, but scored only one receiving touchdown in 2016.

Over the next two and a half minutes, State systematically worked its way down the field, from its own 28 yard line all the way to the SC eight.

Deebo Samuel scored three touchdowns for SC, including a kickoff return on the first play of the game, to lead the Gamecocks to a 35-28 win over the Wolfpack on Saturday.

N.C. State held a 504-248 advantage in total yards.

Prior to his quip about Dabo and Deebo, Muschamp discussed sophomore QB Jake Bentley, the challenges of facing Mizzou next weekend and the Gamecocks' improved defense. That led to a high-scoring first quarter, with the game knotted at 14. Of course, the defensive line could only watch from the sideline as the N.C. State kickoff coverage unit dug an early 7-0 deficit against the Gamecocks.

SEC Network television personality and former Auburn offensive lineman Cole Cubelic made waves during the preseason for including the Wolfpack in his playoff final four in large part because N.C. State boasts one of the best defensive lines in college football.

Nyheim Hines, who scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter for the Wolfpack, was the game's leading rusher with 81 yards on 15 carries.
