RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Following a lackluster performance at Florida State, N.C. State head coach Dave Doeren is making a change at quarterback.

Bailey Hockman will start under center for the Wolfpack – replacing Matt McKay.

Hockman took over for McKay in the Pack’s 31-13 loss to the Seminoles on Sept. 28.

Redshirt freshman Devin Leary is now listed as Hockman’s backup.

Despite holding a winning record at 3-2, the Wolfpack were soundly defeated at West Virginia and Florida State.

All three quarterbacks saw action in Tallahassee. McKay was benched after throwing for 20 yards on 3 of 7 passing.

Hockman, a redshirt sophomore, threw 21 of 40 for 208 with a touchdown against Florida State.

N.C. State hosts Syracuse on Thursday at 8 p.m.
