Wolfpack gets set for UNC back Gio Bernard

There’s no need to explain to N.C. State the value of North Carolina running back Gio Bernard. The Wolfpack defense knows the best way to beat the Tar Heels is to hold Bernard in check. That’s what happened last year when the two teams met in Raleigh, a 13-0 N.C. State win. But Bernard has been even better in coach Larry Fedora’s spread offense than he was a year ago when he became UNC’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 1997. (Raleigh News & Observer)
