UNC, Duke locked 6-6 at the half

At halftime, Duke and North Carolina are tied 6-6.

Blue Devil kicker Nick Maggio booted a 26-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter to knot the score.

The game largely has been a defensive struggle, with neither team managing to penetrate the other's end zone despite stringing together several long drives.

The Tar Heels limited the Blue Devils to negative four yards rushing in the first half, and Duke grounded T.J. Yates and UNC's passing game to the tune of only 58 yards.

The Blue Devils also blocked a punt, which led to another Maggio field goal.

Shaun Draughn (shoulder) was injured on the first play of the game for UNC, and his return is doubtful. Ryan Houston has gained 62 yards in his stead.
