The No. 15 North Carolina football team and Duke are tied 21-21 at halftime. Here are three things to note from the game so far.
Early UNC lead disappears
On Duke’s first two offensive drives, they struggled to get much going. While neither was a three-and-out, the Blue Devils were unable to find any sense of rhythm in the passing or ground game. They punted twice.
The Tar Heels, on the other hand, wasted no time getting their offense in gear. They scored touchdowns on each of their first two drives to take a 14-0 lead.
But Duke relented, scoring on its third possession and forcing a UNC punt the third time the Tar Heels got the ball. Duke promptly marched the ball down the field and tied the score at 14 apiece. A third UNC touchdown, halfway through the second quarter, pushed that lead back to seven, but Duke prevented the game from ever getting out of hand.
