Running backs earn win by an inch

For a North Carolina football team that has struggled to find a ground game all season, it was surprising Saturday against Duke that the Tar Heels found their fate in the hands of — or rather the feet of — a running back. It was Ronnie McGill’s best performance of the season. He racked up 146 yards on 28 carries, along with the TD. A majority of the yards came in the first quarter as McGill sliced apart the Duke defense for 78 yards. (Daily Tar Heel)
