Giovani Bernard hates NFL fantasy football

Giovani Bernard doesn't care about your fantasy team. The Cincinnati Bengals running back certainly wants to do well and understands how he performs on a weekly basis affects a lot of other people. He just doesn't seem to have a whole lot of sympathy for fantasy owners, especially since entering the NFL. (Bleacher Report)

WR Dwight Jones assigned to Arena League's Arizona Rattlers

The world champion Arizona Rattlers have been assigned wide receiver Dwight Jones for the 2015 Arena Football League season. This will be Jones' first season in the AFL.

He most recently spent time with the NFL's New York Jets. (KPHO.com)

Turner's Take: Finding a Way

Virginia should have beaten Carolina on Saturday. The Cavaliers dominated time of possession by more than a quarter, ran 23 more plays and rushed for 60 more yards than the Tar Heels. UNC, meanwhile, did not snap the ball inside the Virginia 20-yard line until fewer than six minutes remained in the game. And yet, when the final whistle blew, it was the Tar Heels who had a 28-27 win. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-UVa: Larry Fedora Postgame Quotes

Larry Fedora: “What a game. I give those guys credit on the other side; they played a heck of a football game. We were fortunate to find a way to win. I’m proud of our kids because they did find a way to win. We did not play a really good game in probably any of the phases, but we made enough plays to win a football game and that’s what it boils down to.” (Inside Carolina)

'Wild, Hectic' Finish For UNC

Virginia appeared on the verge of taking a commanding lead over North Carolina with less than seven minutes to play on Saturday. The Tar Heels rallied with game-changing plays in all three phases to notch their first road win of the season. (Inside Carolina)

Poor coaching dooms Virginia in loss to North Carolina

The fourth-quarter clock was winding down and, leading by six, the Cavaliers had a first down in Tar Heels' territory. This was it. This was the season's swing game, and Virginia was going to remain atop the ACC's Coastal Division and move within a victory of the bowl eligibility. Then came an unraveling, one that will live in infamy and lead any obituaries the season might require. UNC 28, Virginia 27. (Daily Press)

Bizarre final minutes lead to UNC win

The win wasn't pretty, not by any means. But there were moments of triumph. The defense, much maligned since the season's start, held Virginia to just three points and 130 yards of total offense in the second half. The special teams was responsible for two big punts in the fourth quarter, pinning the Cavaliers at the one and two yard lines on back-to-back punts. (Carolina Blue)

UNC over UVA: From walk-on to standout, Mack Hollins excels

UNC coach Larry Fedora said that no one on North Carolina was going to say he played a great game in UNC’s 28-27 win over Virginia Saturday — except for sophomore Mack Hollins. The former walk-on caught two long touchdown passes in the first half, helped field two punts inside the 2 in the second half and then grabbed a surprise onside kick with four minutes left.

Recap & Analysis: UNC 28 Virginia 27

The big difference in this game was that the defense provided more than enough stops. The problem for UNC was multiple empty possessions after the defense did its job. UNC is now 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the ACC and very much alive for a bowl game and the Coastal Division title. This was also UNC's third straight win in Charlottesville which had long been a house of horror but not anymore. (Tar Heel Blog)

Reactions: Carolina 28, Virginia 27

Marquise Williams' total yardage numbers are absurd when you consider that he really hasn't even been the acknowledged starting quarterback for more than a handful of games in his Tar Heel career. Through it all, he's piled up 5,079 yards, more than the legendary Charlie Justice and 419 short of Jason Stanicek. Mack Hollins is going to play football in the NFL. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Virginia Postgame Notes

Marquise Williams' 52-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the longest rush of his career. It was the 14th rushing touchdown of his career, which is a school record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. The previous record was 13 by Ronald Curry (1998-2001). Williams is now sixth in UNC history in total offense with 5,079 yards. He moved past legendary Charlie Justice today. (GoHeels.com)
