Morris took over for starter Jack Chambers to lead an unexpected comeback for the Wolfpack. N.C. State trailed 21-3 on Grant Wells’ 20-yard TD keeper with 4:02 in the third quarter. But Morris directed three straight touchdown drives. He hit Thayer Thomas for two scores, including the go-ahead one with 7:38 left. Wells ran for two scores and had an 85-yard touchdown pass for the Hokies.
