Virginia vs. NC State score: Cavaliers lead 23-0 after three quarters

The Virginia Cavaliers are just 15 minutes away from their first ACC win in 2012, as Virginia currently leads the N.C. State Wolfpack, 23-0.

Virginia took a 16-0 lead into halftime, thanks to two first quarter touchdowns and a safety. The Cavaliers missed an opportunity at the end of the first half to extend their lead to 19-0, when Ian Frye missed a 23-yard field goal, but Virginia kept the pressure on in the second half.

Phillip Sims connected with Tim Smith for a 38-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter, giving the Cavaliers a commanding 23-0 lead over the Wolfpack.

Sims and Michael Rocco have been part of a tag-team attack at quarterback for Virginia. Sims has completed 7-of-9 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown, and also added a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Rocco started the game 4-of-4 passing, but is now just 12-of-21 for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Virginia's defense, as a shutout would indicate, has played exceptionally well, forcing three turnovers, while holding the Wolfpack to just 18 yards rushing through the first three quarters.
