Derrele Mitchell has a much-needed big first game

All North Carolina wanted was a play to keep a desperate drive alive. Derrele Mitchell delivered much more. The pass play - the second-longest in school history - helped the Tar Heels to a 14-14 halftime tie, but the Yellow Jackets went on to a 27-21 victory. The play also helped Mitchell quickly become the big-play receiver he said he wanted to be. (Winston-Salem Journal)
