UNC hangs on for 28-27 victory in thrilling fashion at Virginia

Quarterback Marquise Williams has been UNC's offensive savior all season long, but backup Mitch Trubisky produced the biggest play of the game Saturday, and UNC was the beneficiary of a huge mistake by Virginia down the stretch in UNC's 28-27 win. Trubisky completed a touchdown pass to T.J. Thorpe on third-and-15 from U.Va.'s 16-yard line with 4:05 left to put UNC up 28-27. (Daily Press)

Late interception, onside kick doom U.Va. against UNC

Virginia let a chance to regain control of the ACC's Coastal Division slip away Saturday, falling to North Carolina 28-27 at Scott Stadium. Cavaliers quarterback Greyson Lambert was intercepted by UNC defensive tackle Nazair Jones at the UNC 42. He returned the ball 20 yards to set up the Tar Heels at the Virginia 38. UNC scored six plays later, with 4:05 left, then recovered an onside kick. (Virginian-Pilot)

Butch Davis, Mack Brown address UNC scandal

Former North Carolina football coaches Butch Davis and Mack Brown both vehemently denied any knowledge or involvement in the academic fraud scandal at UNC. Davis and Brown both spoke on the issue for the first time in an interview Saturday that aired at halftime of ESPN2's Rutgers at Nebraska game. Both Davis and Brown are ESPN analysts. (ESPN.com)

UNC, UVA football teams’ histories illustrate sports and race issues

In 1936, UNC became the first major Southern university to go north and play football against a desegregated team. Eleven years later, the University of Virginia became the first major university in the South to host an integrated football team. Both events were significant steps in the desegregation of college football, said Matthew Andrews ’08 (PhD), a sports historian at UNC. (UNC General Alumni Association)

Vikings' Jabari Price, a UNC graduate, 'shocked' at academic findings

Vikings cornerback and UNC graduate Jabari Price said he was "shocked'' when an independent investigator released a report this week that many athletes had taken fake "paper classes'' over the past 18 years to remain eligible at the school. Price played for the Tar Heels from 2010-13. He said Friday he never knew anything about such classes until having read media reports. (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

The Seemers and the Schemers: The Wainstein Report and UNC’s Repeat Performance

I sat in the room with my husband, John Shoop (the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach at UNC from 2007-2011), when he was interviewed by Jay Joseph, one of the attorneys on the Wainstein team a few months ago. The testimony that is printed in the report attributed to John is only a fraction of what he actually said. And some very important things were redacted from his account. (Rev. Marcia Mount Shoop, Ph.D.)

Making it work: Marquise Williams' star shines for Heels

Marquise Williams has 1,521 yards of total offense in the past four games, 200 more than any previous UNC player. “I really think it’s more of just, he’s gotten into a pretty good rhythm and he feels comfortable,” Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora said. Now Williams will try to continue his success against one of the ACC’s most experienced defenses: Virginia. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Virginia aims to end its Carolina blues

Four games, four North Carolina wins. The combined scoreboard: Tar Heels 154, Wahoos 44. UVa (4-3, 2-1 ACC) will be seeking to buck a serious trend when it welcomes UNC (3-4, 1-2) to Charlottesville for Saturday’s 12:30 kickoff. “It’s the oldest rivalry in the South,” said senior right guard Conner Davis. “We got to get this win for this program." (Lynchburg News & Advance)

Breakin’ It Down: Virginia

Virginia finds its identity in its stingy defense. The Cavaliers are ninth in total defense when playing FBS competition, and few teams attack the quarterback better. The Wahoos have 22 sacks, which ranks 12th in the country. Against a young UNC offensive line, expect the Virginia defensive linemen to win plenty of one-on-one battles in the trenches. (OakeSports)
