WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WakeForestSports.com) - Tanner Price threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to guide Wake Forest to a 28-13 victory over NC State on Saturday afternoon at BB&T Field.

Wake Forest got back to .500 on the year at 3-3 and is now 1-2 in the ACC, while NC State falls to 3-2 overall and remains winless in conference play at 0-2. It as the sixth-straight time that Demon Deacons defeated the Wolfpack at home.

Price went 24-of-39 for 268 yards through the air to go along with his three touchdown passes. He also set career highs in rushing yards and rushing attempts, scampering for 82 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. He now has 1,245 passing yards on the year and joins Riley Skinner as the only two quarterbacks in Wake Forest history to throw for at least 1,000 yards in each of their four seasons.

Michael Campanaro proved to be Price's favorite target once again, catching 12 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns. Campanaro became just the second Deacon to ever catch more than 200-career passes. He currently sits at 206 receptions and is just 10 behind Desmond Clark for the school record.

Ryan Janvion led the defense with a career-high 11 tackles, while Mike Olson added eight tackles. The Demon Deacons also had four sacks and two interceptions. Nikita Whitlock and Zach Thompson had one sack apiece, and Kevin Johnson and Merrill Noel accounted for the two picks.
