Ted Brown's touchdown record at N.C. State is safe for the foreseeable future, but senior kicker Nik Sade past the legendary running back in the Wolfpack record books on Saturday.
Sade made six extra points in Saturday's 42-13 win over Wake Forest to give him 317 points in his career. Brown finished his career in 1978 with 312 points.
"It's a record that he's held for a long time at this program, a program that I've followed ever since moving here," said Sade, who was born in Germany but went to high school at Wakefield. "It's a great honor just to be in the same sentence as him."
Sade already holds the school record for PATs (158) and field goals (53). He's tied with former Boston College kicker Nate Freese for 12th on the ACC scoring list.
Brown, who had 51 touchdowns and three two-point conversions, still ranks as the top position player (with former Virginia running back Wali Lundy) on the ACC's career scoring list.
N.C. State coach Dave Doeren had a different reason to enjoy Sade's new record.
"I was happy that it happened on all extra points, instead of field goals," Doeren said.
SENIOR MOMENTS: Sade wasn't the only senior who had a memorable sendoff at Carter-Finley Stadium.
Running back Tony Creecy scored the game's first touchdown, a 2-yard run, and receiver Bryan Underwood had 76 yards on two carries, including a 75-yard touchdown run.
Senior defensive end Art Norman also had a sack and was second on the team with six tackles.
"It was just a great all-around team win and not just for senior day," Underwood said. "It was great to go out like we did.
BOWL MATH: N.C. State became the eighth ACC team to reach six wins and bowl eligibility. Six wins doesn't guarantee a bowl spot but the conference has 12 possible bowl tie-ins.
N.C. State went to a bowl game three straight years from 2010 to '12 under former coach Tom O'Brien before finishing 3-9 last season.
Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren has been a head coach for four seasons and been to a bowl game three times (twice at Northern Illinois before coming to N.C. State).
A representative from the Military Bowl was at Saturday's game.
