Marquee QB matchup headlines UNC-NC State rivalry game

The Tar Heels are among the hottest teams in the nation and favored by a touchdown to extend their win streak to 11 entering the ACC title game against Clemson. If Jacoby Brissett has been good for the Pack, Marquise Williams has been just as good and maybe better this season for the Heels. There’s a reasonably good chance Thanksgiving Day 2016 could find both on NFL rosters. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC Volleyball Uses Efficient Offense To Sweep Demon Deacons

North Carolina volleyball kept its hot streak going on Wednesday, capturing its 12th straight victory with a sweep of Wake Forest on the final week of the 2015 regular season. The Tar Heels hit .371 with 12 blocks in the 3-0 victory to secure its sixth consecutive 20-win season, improving to 20-8 (17-2 ACC). (GoHeels.com)

Charlotte players dominate rosters for UNC, N.C. State football

When rivals North Carolina and NC State meet for the 105th time at Carter-Finley Stadium, a total of 35 players who hail from in or around Charlotte will be on the sidelines. Among the 14 on the Wolfpack's roster and the 21 playing for the Tar Heels are several former high school teammates and competitors, which adds an element of city pride to an already intense rivalry.

Hakeem Nicks is back with the Giants, who think he can help

Hakeem Nicks, the Giants' prodigal 2009 first-round pick, is still, somehow, only 27 years old. What remains to be seen is how and how much Nicks can help. The Giants ran a completely different offensive system in 2009-13, when Nicks caught 311 passes for 4,622 yards and 27 touchdowns and helped the Giants to their Super Bowl XLVI title. (ESPN.com)

Shaun Draughn Goes from Real Estate Salesman to Starting NFL Running Back

Shaun Draughn’s career was at a low point in 2013. The undrafted running back had just been released by the Baltimore Ravens. After already being let go by two other teams, Draughn began to consider life after football and turned to real estate, something he’d always been interested in. But more phone calls and tryouts from NFL teams allowed Draughn to put those plans on hold. (San Francisco 49ers)

Justin Jackson was dominant in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic, combining for 43 points (16-28 FG) to go along with 18 rebounds and 8 assists in two games against Northwestern and Kansas State - both Carolina victories. View Video...

UNC Women's Basketball Falls To Pacific

Erin Butler scored 15 points to lead Pacific to a 66-63 win over North Carolina Wednesday at Carmichael Arena. Xylina McDaniel came off the bench to score 16 points to lead four UNC (4-3) players in double figures. Jamie Cherry added 15 points before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. Freshmen guards Destinee Walker and Stephanie Watts each had 11 points. (GoHeels.com)

N.C. State looks to recapture magic of last year's win over UNC

Penetration in the backfield. Pressuring the quarterback to throw off his rhythm. Tackle well in space and don't give up deep balls. That was the formula the N.C. State Wolfpack used a year ago in routing archrival North Carolina on its home field, 35-7. (Fayetteville Observer)

Gene Chizik Nominated For 2015 Broyles Award

UNC defensive coordinator Gene Chizik has been nominated for the 2015 Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation's top assistant coach. Chizik won the award while serving as the defensive coordinator at Auburn in 2004. No team in the country has improved as dramatically on defense as the Tar Heels, who are allowing nearly 20 fewer points and more than 113 fewer yards than last year. (GoHeels.com)

Fedora praises UNC's consistency, discusses rivalry

North Carolina's goal is to become state champs. UNC has beaten Duke and Wake Forest. A win over the rival Wolfpack would fulfill that goal. Even though the Coastal Division has been clinched, Larry Fedora doesn't worry about the Tar Heels preparing any differently or not being focused. It's a rivalry game and that can bring out the best in both teams. (Carolina Blue)

A scientific look at Roy Williams' emotions

Emotion. It's something that UNC Men's Basketball Coach Roy Williams has a lot of. And now we know exactly what he's feeling. Microsoft released a new tool that uses an algorithm to guess how you feel, by using a picture of your face. The Daily Tar Heel used the tool to run some old photos of Roy to see just how he was feeling and graphed the results: (Daily Tar Heel)

The official Week 13 rooting guide for North Carolina fans

It’s the final week of the regular season, and at No. 14, the Tar Heels certainly aren’t a lock for the playoff even if they win out. But as a conference champion with 12 straight wins, a UNC team that wins out would have a good case. So, with that in mind, which teams should UNC fans be rooting for this week? Here’s a quick guide, in descending order of importance. (ESPN.com)

#FeedTheRivalry, Feed the Food Bank

Rivalry week in the Triangle is in full swing as UNC visits N.C. State this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. (pipe down Duke fans, it’s football). In addition to providing you week-long coverage of this historic rivalry, the Sports Channel 8 team will be doing our part to help feed those in need in our community. (SportsChannel 8)

Looking back at UNC's 14-14 tie versus Virginia Tech in 1946

It was September 28, 1946 when VPI (now Virginia Tech) came into Chapel Hill to meet the Tar Heels in a game that opened the “Golden Era,” or “Charlie Justice Era” as some like to call it. Photographer Hugh Morton was on hand to document this historic game. UNC wingback Jim Camp, running Head Coach Carl Snavely’s famous reverse, accounted for 50 yards of offense during that Saturday encounter. (A View to Hugh)

How much is a win vs. No. 1 worth? Likely not enough for North Carolina

Is a win over No. 1 Clemson worth six spots in the final rankings? That could be the defining question of North Carolina’s playoff chances. The Tar Heels are ranked No. 14 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, which still looks to be too far away to become a factor in the playoff race. For a second consecutive week, it looks as if it is Clemson or bust for the ACC. (ESPN.com)

Why committee's snub of Pittsburgh hurts North Carolina

The latest round of rankings from the College Football Playoff committee probably don’t mean a ton for No. 14 North Carolina or unranked Pittsburgh on the surface. If UNC wins out, it’s chances for a playoff bid as the ACC conference champ will provide a good debate. Where it is ranked right now is less important than what it does on the field this week.

Remembering Quincy Monk

Yesterday Quincy Omar Monk lost his battle with cancer. Words cannot express our sadness for the loss of Quincy, in times like these they are never enough, no matter how sincere or heartfelt. The tragedy of the loss grows larger for someone taken so quickly, so young (he was 36), leaving a young family behind. Our hearts go out to Lisa, his wife, and his children, Naomi and Aiden. (Inside Carolina)

Through the Years: Carolina-State rivalry filled with the unforgettable

Among the ACC’s original members, no two schools have gone longer without a championship than NC State and North Carolina. The Wolfpack has not captured a title since 1979. The Tar Heels’ championship drought is only one year shorter. But despite the paucity of ACC football titles, games between the two schools have given us some indelible moments. And memories.
