Two 100-yard rushers fuel UNC's win
After entering halftime tied at 14 – thanks to a second quarter pick-six by safety Da’Norris Searcy – the Tar Heels handled their business in the second half. Though quarterback T.J. Yates struggled at times to get into a rhythm with his receivers, running back Johnny White picked up the slack, rushing for over 100 yards in the second half alone to get things rolling. Then Shaun Draughn did the rest.
Both running backs rushed for over 100 yards, the first time UNC’s done that since 2004.
