If you’re just now tuning in to the Rutgers-North Carolina football game, you haven’t missed much. UNC has already fumbled it, botched a punt and failed to move the sticks multiple times. But, after surviving the first quarter to be down 10-0, UNC found some offense. T.J. Yates has continued to move the ball efficiently and Johnny White has run the ball well. But, with less than a minute left in the first half, Jheranie Boyd fumbled, forfeiting the Tar Heels’ shots at timing down Rutgers’ 10-7 halftime lead.
