UNC’s Quinshad Davis ready to go home, make an impact | News & Observer

To begin his sophomore year, the North Carolina wide receiver is going his home state, but for the Tar Heels’ opening game at South Carolina as their go-to target.

“I’m a Dukie, also,” said Spurrier, whose sixth-ranked Gamecocks will host the Tar Heels on Thursday at Williams-Brice Stadium (6 p.m., ESPN). “I’m a Gator, a Dukie and now a Gamecock.

“I think every day I go out there, my job is on the line,” said Renner, who threw 28 touchdown passes and seven interceptions last season – the first in coach Larry Fedora’s spread offense. “And coach Fedora loves competition. And going into this year, starting in the summer, starting in the winter, I wanted to prove to them that I’m still the best quarterback for this team.”
