Tanner Price threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score to help Wake Forest beat North Carolina State 28-13 on Saturday, extending its mastery of the Wolfpack at home.

Michael Campanaro caught two of Price's scoring throws in a huge performance of his own, helping the Demon Deacons (3-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) earn their sixth straight win against N.C. State in Winston-Salem.

N.C. State (3-2, 0-2) hasn't won here in a dozen years in a mystifying streak. The only common thread is longtime Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, who coaxed the best performance of the season from an underachieving veteran team at the perfect time.

Price threw for 268 yards and ran for a career-high 82 more, while Campanaro had 12 catches for 153 yards. His second touchdown, a 27-yard grab on a perfect throw from Price, put Wake Forest in control with a two-touchdown fourth-quarter lead.
