UNC had its longest scoring drive of the season in the second quarter, when Romar Morris capped a 94-yard drive with a 30-yard touchdown run.
Three Tar Heel tailbacks scored touchdowns in the first half: Giovani Bernard, A.J. Blue and Morris.
Bernard became the first Tar Heel with 1,000 rushing yards in consecutive seasons since Natrone Means in 1991 and 1992.
Eric Ebron set a UNC single-season record for receptions by a tight end in the second quarter when he recorded his 37th catch of the season.
Quinshad Davis recorded his first game with 100 receiving yards, and caught an 11-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
Casey Barth set a single-season record by making his 44th consecutive PAT and holds the school record with 126 consecutive PATs made. Barth was injured on a kickoff in the third quarter and did not return to the game.
It didn’t feel near the same as the last time we came off that field. It was a pretty poor feeling actually. We played poorly in all three phases of the game. Give Georgia Tech credit for what they accomplished today because they were the better team.
It’s never the case that you get that feeling that you can’t stop these guys; we just know it’s that one guy who missed, or one guy who messed up.
It’s embarrassing. You don’t wanna give up that many points.
“Coach was telling us all week ‘do your job, do your job,’ and guys came out and didn’t do that today.”
I’ve still got a bitter taste in my mouth because we lost. I feel honored that he looked to me on third down as a freshman, so I feel blessed.
I felt like I had two touchdowns because on a screen play I got tackled on the one.
