RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Three snaps for Jalan McClendon. Three touchdowns.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Ryan Finley looked at ease as North Carolina State's starting quarterback. Of course, he didn't need to do a lot of heavy lifting with Jaylen Samuels and Matt Dayes repeatedly getting to the end zone.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren isn't in a rush to settle the question on who will start at quarterback in the season opener.
