The North Carolina State Wolfpack shocked the college football landscape with a 27-21 victory over top-ranked Clemson Saturday night. It was the Wolfpack’s first win against a top-10 team in head coach Dave Doren’s nine-year tenure with the program.

Wolfpack fans savored the win. Several students rushed the field in celebration after the Wolfpack snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Tigers.

The Wolfpack official Twitter account captured the moment in a unique way. A videographer provided an in-depth look at the celebration. The video included the last play in double overtime and the raw emotions of fans after the final whistle blew.

The social post tagged the video “All the feels.” Doren later told reporters that the curse against top-ranked teams was no more.

“The curse is broken, N.C. State fans, finally,” Doeren chuckled. “I've been here nine years and seen a lot of crazy stuff. And people have talked about it and didn't believe it. But I've got to tell you: I think it was real, and it's not there anymore. So we can move on now and be happy about that.”

The Wolfpack will be back in action on Saturday against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. At 3-1 overall, N.C. State sits a game behind Wake Forest in the ACC Atlantic division.
