Chansky’s Notebook: A New Maye Breaks In

My biggest takeaway from the basketball warm-up was Luke Maye’s retooled body and outstanding play in the one-sided practice game against UNC-Pembroke; and how his father, Mark Maye, was in the news Saturday after Mitch Trubisky equaled or broke some of his 30-year-old passing records at Kenan Stadium, as the Heels beat the Jackets a third straight time.

Blue Devils turn focus to Tar Heels

Trying to move past a second three-point loss in a row shouldn’t be a problem for Duke. There’s little time to dwell on the past with No. 15 North Carolina’s visit approaching. “The week is over,” Duke linebacker Joe Giles-Harris said after Saturday’s loss to Virginia Tech. “On to a new week.” The future includes Thursday night’s matchup with the Tar Heels. (Burlington Times News)

Extra Points: The Eyes Have It

Two snippets from the sidelines late in the first quarter Saturday provide a salient and crystal-clear window into the challenges and mindset of the Carolina coaches on both sides of the football. The Tar Heels pounded old nemesis Georgia Tech 48-20 on a sparkling homecoming afternoon behind a balanced effort that included magisterial offense. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Football Making the Climb

With three weeks remaining in the regular season and the Tar Heels still in contention for the ACC Championship Game, it’s tempting to write that Larry Fedora’s bunch is peaking. That being said, his Tar Heels dismissed questions suggesting they have reached their potential. “I think we’re getting better each week,” Mitch Trubisky said. “I think we’re still hungry.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC football climbs to No. 15 in AP poll; Clemson, Louisville stay put

With a dominating 48-20 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina moved up to No. 15 nationally in the updated Associated Press College Football Poll released Sunday. UNC was ranked 18th a week ago. Other Atlantic Coast Conference teams in the top 25 include Clemson (3), Louisville (5), Virginia Tech (18) and Florida State (20). (WRAL Sports Fan)

Healthy, energized Hood back to dangerous self

With a 114-yard, two-touchdown first quarter, Elijah Hood powerfully returned to the running back who can be as dangerous as anybody in the country. Back was that intimidating, hard-to-stop style much like former Georgia great Herschel Walker. His fresh legs and strong strides were obvious when he surged for a 45-yard run on the game’s second play. (Raleigh & Company)

November Men: North Carolina poised for strong finish

It was at this time in 2015 that Carolina played its best football. Saturday’s win over Georgia Tech was a sign that this year’s Tar Heel team might also be peaking in the final month. UNC clicked in all three phases. It was a well-rounded performance for a team that needs to keep winning if it’s going to have any shot at claiming the division crown. (Today's U)

Hood helps Tar Heels' offense accelerate past Georgia Tech

A trick play first, with Austin Proehl taking a handoff from and then throwing back to Mitch Trubisky for an 8-yard gain. And then it was Elijah Hood for 45 yards on one play that showed how lethal North Carolina’s offense can be with a full, healthy complement of its weaponry. “I felt real good coming into this game. I felt like I had something to prove,” said Hood. (Burlington Times News)

A healthy Hood destroys GT run defense

Elijah Hood has been battling injuries all year, but finally nearing 100 percent, he busted out for a huge game against Georgia Tech. Last season, Hood rushed for greater than 10 yards-per-carry in three games. The UNC running back had not topped that mark AT ALL during his sophomore season...until this game. (Carolina Blue)

Trubisky on UNC's efficient, balanced offense

UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky had another signature afternoon for the Tar Heels on Saturday. In Carolina's 48-20 win, the Ohio native led an offense that wore down and surgically sliced up the Yellow Jacket defense. Trubisky was 20-for-32 for 329 yards and one passing touchdown. He added six carries for 44 yards and a score. (Carolina Blue)

UNC-Georgia Tech Postgame Notes

UNC has won 18 of its last 22 games, including 13 of 14 ACC regular-season games. The 636 total yards are the seventh-highest total in UNC single-game history. Today marks the first time in UNC history players rushed for 100 yards, passed for 300 yards and had 100 receiving yards in consecutive games. UNC has now won 10 of the last 11 games at Kenan Stadium. (GoHeels.com)

Larry Fedora Post-Georgia Tech Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Really a complete game for us. I thought our special teams played well. I thought our defense played really well. They gave us four extra possessions with a blocked field goal, two turnovers, and stuffing them on a fourth down. That was huge. Offensively, we ran the ball efficiently, and Mitch (Trubisky) threw the ball as well as always.” (GoHeels.com)

Elijah Hood Breaks Out

It only took Elijah Hood one quarter against Georgia Tech to reach his season-high rushing total. In the first quarter of Saturday’s 48-20 win over the Yellow Jackets, Hood amassed 114 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just seven carries. The junior finished the game with 168 total rushing yards and three touchdowns. Even Hood couldn’t believe it. (Inside Carolina)

Hood Spearheads Dominant Offensive Output as No. 21 UNC Rolls Past Georgia Tech

Entering Saturday’s ACC Coastal Division matchup against Georgia Tech, the UNC football team knew it would have to execute its plays without giving up precious opportunities. From the first possession on, though, it was clear that the Tar Heel offense had everything working—dominating the Yellow Jackets on the way to a 48-20 homecoming victory. (Chapelboro.com)

Are 2016 Tar Heels better than '15 edition?

North Carolina produced plenty of evidence Saturday they may have saved their best for last in routing longtime nemesis Georgia Tech 48-20 on Saturday at Kenan Stadium. From the second play from scrimmage, when junior Elijah Hood ripped off a 45-yard run, it was clear the Tar Heels were refreshed after an open date and operating at the top of their game.
