Pack's Wilson breaks national record

N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson broke a national record in the third quarter on Saturday night.

Wilson's 13-yard pass to James Washington late in the third quarter gave him 326 consecutive passes without an interception dating back to a game against Clemson on Sept 13 of last year.

The crowd gave a hearty cheer as the video boards at Carter-Finley Stadium announced that Wilson had set the record.

Andre Woodson of Kentucky set the previous Division I-A/Football Bowl Subdivision record of 325 passes without an interception in 2006-07.

N.C. State led Gardner-Webb 38-7 after three quarters.
