N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson is the offensive back of the week, Wolfpack linebacker Nate Irving the defensive lineman of the week and UNC linebacker Bruce Carter defensive back of the week.

Wilson set records in the now No. 23 Wolfpack’s impressive win at Georgia Tech. The junior completed 28 of 41 passes for a career best 368 yards and three touchdowns, seeing his passes caught by 10 different receivers. The junior did throw one interception in the contest, ending his NCAA record streak of 379 passes without an interception.

Irving, who on Sunday was named national defensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Foundation, had 16 tackles including nine solos, 4 1/2 tackles-for-loss and a pair of sacks.

Carter had seven tackles, returned an interception 55 yards and added his sixth career blocked punt in the Tar Heels’ win at Rutgers.
