DERRICK MORSE Q&A

Q: You got some help with Virginia and Virginia Tech losing last week.

Morse: It's everything we were hoping for. We put ourselves in that position, but we got a little help and now we're in the driver's seat. We didn't plan to have a couple of those losses, were out of the ACC Championship run. Now we're right back in it and control our own destiny. Everyone sees we can still salvage this season and end up in the ACC Championship and a BCS Bowl game. Everybody's excited about it. You can tell everyone's spirits are up. We're definitely on the right track.

Q: NC State likes to blitz. Does that put an emphasis on the offensive line's play?

Morse: They definitely blitz a lot and pack the box, pretty much say, `You can't run the ball.' But so far our mentality each week going into each game is `We're going to run the ball no matter what.' And we proved that against Duke when they stacked the box. We came out and ran the ball great the second half at Florida State, so that gives us a lot of confidence, too. So we expect to do the same against NC State.
