After forcing a turnover on downs with less than two minutes to play, Wake Forest's offense stepped on the field with a chance to upset No. 22 N.C. State at Carter-Finely Stadium.
Jamie Newman, who was named the start earlier this week, orchestrated a game-winning drive that was capped by a 32-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jack Freudenthal to give the Deacons a 27-23 victory at Carter-Finley Stadium.
He opened the drive with three straight completions, including one over the middle to Greg Dortch to get the ball past the 50-yard line and into Wolfpack territory. Three plays later, Newman and Dortch connected to move the ball to the Wolfpack 32.
A pass tipped at the line of scrimmage appeared to be caught by Sage Surratt as he went to the ground. It was ruled an incomplete pass but was reviewed. The call stood.
On the next play, Newman found Jack Freudenthal over the middle. Freudenthal was untouched as he scored the game winning touchdown.
