Mitch Trubisky Among Eighteen Davey O'Brien Semifinalists

After tabulating results of the Davey O'Brien National Selection Committee's ballots as well as the votes cast by fans, the 2016 semifinalists for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award have been determined and UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky is among the group.

UNC will meet Duke on the gridiron for the 103rd time tonight. Of the 102 previous meetings, Carolina claims 61 wins in the series that dates back to 1888. With the rivalry about to play out one more time, Hugh Morton collection volunteer Jack Hilliard looks back 59 seasons to one of those UNC victories that Tar Heels like to recall as “one for the books.” (UNC.edu)

UNC-Duke Preview: Get to know the Duke Blue Devils

North Carolina heads down Tobacco Road to take on rival Duke on Thursday night in a nationally-televised showdown. The Blue Devils will come out hungry as they need to win out to keep their 4-game bowl streak alive.

Carolina Faces Duke Thursday For Victory Bell

No. 15/13 North Carolina puts its nine-game road win streak on the line when the Tar Heels play at Duke on Thursday, Nov. 10.

Ryan Switzer's act of kindness creates lifelong bond and inspires school

Lisa Ellars' room at John Adams Middle School couldn’t accommodate her class plus the 20 football players who were visiting daily. It was supposed to be a once-a-month movie club her sixth-grade special education class hosted. But when Ryan Switzer, the state’s sandlot football star, began showing up to see his best friend, Cliff, and help out the class, people took notice. (ESPN.com)

Chansky’s Notebook: Better Endings?

Going 10-2 and to the Belk Bowl wouldn’t be too shabby. Entering tonight’s game at Duke, the Tar Heels’ only path to the ACC Championship game is to win out and hope Virginia Tech loses to Georgia Tech or Virginia. Their reward for winning the Coastal Division is playing Clemson for the second straight year in the title game. Do we really want to do that again? (Chapelboro.com)

It took a little while, but Eric Ebron developing into Top 10 TE for Lions

After catching 25 passes for 248 yards as a rookie, Eric Ebron nearly doubled his production last season, catching 47 passes for 537 yards. In six games this season, he's already come close to matching those numbers. He has 32 receptions for 381 yards (12 yards per catch). The bigger thing for Ebron, though, is what's happened the past two weeks. (ESPN.com)

Video: Lucas Crowley Leads the Way

A three-time Atlantic Coast Conference offensive lineman of the week, North Carolina center Lucas Crowley has been leading the way for the Tar Heel offense. View Video...

Tar Heels look to dodge Duke

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora sees dangers of going on the road to face a wounded Duke team. The Blue Devils, who came up short in an upset bid of Virginia Tech last weekend, could additionally damage North Carolina’s quest for a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game when they meet tonight at Wallace Wade Stadium. (Burlington Times News)

UNC football faces rebuilding but resilient Duke squad

Duke is in a rebuilding year, but the Blue Devils still have their best asset: Coach David Cutcliffe. Though Duke has only three wins this season (none in the ACC), the Blue Devils beat Notre Dame and played close with Louisville and Virginia Tech. Cutcliffe gives them a chance in every game. The offense is led by redshirt first-year quarterback Daniel Jones. (Daily Tar Heel)

For UNC, underestimating Duke isn't an option

The Tar Heels and Blue Devils enter Thursday's game on opposite ends of the spectrum. UNC has bounced back from its loss to Virginia Tech with three straight wins, keeping them in the hunt for the Coastal crown. But the outlook hasn't been as bright for the team down the road. The Blue Devils are winless in the ACC and own a three-game losing streak. (Carolina Blue)

I Was Wrong About Mitch Trubisky

In a preseason column, I listed seven ‘spoiler alerts’ for the 2016 ACC football season. Some are looking pretty good right about now. Some have already come to fruition. And some are, frankly, embarrassing in hindsight. One of my terrible predictions was that Mitch Trubisky would be another Jeremy Johnson. (Southern Pigskin)

Countdown to Kickoff: UNC-Duke

No. 15 North Carolina travels the eight-mile stretch of U.S. 15-501 across county lines for the 103rd playing of its rivalry with Duke at Wallace Wade Stadium on Thursday night. The Tar Heels, who are seeking their third-straight victory over the Blue Devils and their 24th in 27 meetings, need a win to stay in the ACC Coastal Division race. (Inside Carolina)

Unringing the Victory Bell: UNC-Duke Winner to Spray-Paint Trophy, After All

They'll bring some spray paint to the North Carolina-Duke game, after all. North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham said Wednesday that the winning team will be welcome to paint the Victory Bell traveling trophy that's the spoil of the rivalry between the Blue Devils and Tar Heels. That's a complete 180-degree pivot from earlier in the week. (Associated Press)
