Video: Larry Fedora Post-NC State Locker Room SpeechLarry Fedora spoke to his team after the Tar Heels won their 11th straight game, the first time ever in school history, and clinched the 'state championship' by beating N.C. State in Raleigh 45-34.
UNC in different State of mind after finishing special regular season in style“It was 35-7 at the end of the first,” said UNC linebacker Jeff Schoettmer, who wrote the score down after last year’s game and has kept it on his nightstand ever since. “That’s a good metaphor for how we wanted to come out and make a statement to them. They were talking crap to us before the game and we wanted to make a statement that we’re not the same team we were last year.” (Wilmington Star News)
Turner's Take: Got Your BackThey've said it all season: 'Got your back.'

From Kenan Stadium to Atlanta, from Pittsburgh to Blacksburg to Raleigh. Next weekend, it comes full circle. (GoHeels.com)
Win streak, perfect ACC record tees up Tar Heels' second chance to impressAn 11-game win streak later, North Carolina is undefeated in the ACC and in the ACC title game for the first time since its inception, with a chance to win its first ACC title since 1980. They locked that up last week with an overtime win at Virginia Tech, but this streak of winning has meant that they at least have a chance of getting into the elusive College Football Playoff top 4.

First quarter mountain too tough for Pack to climbDave Doeren regularly tells his team, “Don’t look at the mountain, just climb.” From the very first drive of NC State’s 45-34 loss to No. 11 North Carolina, his team had to heed that mantra. The Wolfpack (7-5, 3-5 ACC) gave up touchdowns on each of UNC’s (11-1, 8-0 ACC) first two drives to face a 14-0 hill to start its second possession. (WRAL Sports Fan)
