RALEIGH — North Carolina State's defense is coming off its best performance of the season entering Saturday's game against Connecticut. Getting more consistency out of the offense would help the 12th-ranked Wolfpack, too.

That unit sputtered after halftime i n Week 1 of an escape at East Carolina, then had issues with completing drives and avoiding score-negating mistakes last weekend against Texas Tech. It hasn't kept the Wolfpack (3-0) from remaining unbeaten, but things must get a bit smoother with No. 5 Clemson looming next week in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener.
