North Carolina Tar Heels victorious against NC State Wolfpack: 27-19


For the second consecutive season, Larry Fedora and his North Carolina Tar Heels have come up victorious against the NC State Wolfpack. This time the Tar Heels were on the road and grabbed the win at NC State.

It was a rough start for North Carolina who saw State take advantage of Bryn Renner’s interception for the early touchdown in the first quarter. NC State would score a field goal before UNC would answer with two straight touchdowns to take a 14-10 lead.

In the second quarter, the Tar Heels would play a trick play that would option Ryan Switzer the ball as the acting quarterback and make the 59 yard touchdown pass to Quinshad Davis to take a 21-16 lead.

The final scoring play for North Carolina would have TJ Logan sneaking past the Wolfpack defensive line and into the end zone for six points.

The second half for the Tar Heels was rather brutal. Overall the Tar Heels would have 8 penalties for 80 yards, but that wasn’t enough to assist the Wolfpack in the end. NC State had just six penalties for thirty-two yards.

While their game plan was identical to East Carolina’s, the Wolfpack couldn’t take advantage of penalties and momentum to overcome the Tar Heels at home in Carter-Finley Stadium. They at least succeeded in copying ECU’s midfield logo!

Fedora is still undefeated against NC State and will return home with his Tar Heels to take on Virginia next week at Kenan Stadium.
