Pack vs. Heels: Anything can happen

The rivalry between UNC and NC State means different things to different people, especially to those playing the game. UNC quarterback Marquise Williams said he considers N.C. State its biggest rival in football. “I think this is the bigger rivalry,” Williams said. “When you think of Duke and Carolina, you think of basketball. I think with football, State and Carolina is where the rivalry is at." (Durham Herald-Sun)

Tar Heels Try To Tame Wolfpack In Home Finale

The North Carolina football team, 6-5 overall and 4-3 in the ACC, closes out its regular season with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday afternoon against its rival from Raleigh – 6-5 N.C. State. The Tar Heels have been led by the gritty, determined play of junior signal caller Marquise Williams, who was named ACC Offensive Back of the Week for the fourth time this season Monday.

Insider Q&A: UNC vs N.C. State

Definitely have to start with Jacoby Brissett first. The majority of last year's team that went 3-9 is back, now with a much more talented quarterback, and it's shown how much of a difference that makes. (Carolina Blue)

Quinton Coples gives turkey meals to those in need

Kinston native and current New York Jets linebacker Quinton Coples and volunteers for his foundation handed out Thanksgiving meals to families in need Wednesday night. It's the third year Coples handed out turkey meals to families. The foundation estimates they handed out close to 350 meals at a Piggly Wiggly in Kinston and at an apartment complex. (WITN)

Caleb Pressley enjoying new role with UNC

A year ago, Caleb Pressley was a backup quarterback who barely saw the field. Now he’s one of the most recognizable figures on the UNC sideline – he’s the guy in the NFL jerseys, UNC’s self-proclaimed Supervisor of Morale. “Backup quarterbacks don’t get a lot of attention, but now I have more attention than I’ve ever had,” Pressley said. A chance to study abroad put all of this in motion. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Decade later, ‘The Play’ lives on for Pack, Heels

Of the 103 football games between North Carolina and N.C. State, the one 10 years ago certainly qualifies as one of the most memorable. UNC’s 30-24 win Oct. 9, 2004, at Kenan Stadium also turned out to be one of the most meaningful. That game, and how it was decided on the goal line, helped push the ACC into the era of instant replay and also kept the Wolfpack from going to a bowl. (Charlotte Observer)

Connor Barth just kept kicking

Tuesday is tryout day. It's the day of the week when Connor Barth knew his chance at re-starting his NFL career would come after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released him at the end of the preseason. And when a week passed without a tryout -- as they usually did -- he made sure he kicked anyway, knowing that was the day around which his career hopes revolved. (Denver Broncos)

Breakin’ It Down: NC State

The Tar Heels look to back up their impressive 45-20 win at Duke with another rivalry win to close out the regular season. The 6-5 Tar Heels will welcome N.C. State, also sporting a 6-5 record, to Chapel Hill Saturday for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff in the 104th meeting of the series. Both squads like their chances heading into the contest. (OakeSports)

A Tale of Two Rivalries

Though the Tar Heel-Wolfpack basketball rivalry seems doomed to exist in the shadow of Duke-UNC, the football rivalry between the two biggest public universities in the state has remained equally preeminent for both fanbases. (Raleigh & Company)

Rivalry Clash Closes Regular Season

UNC looks to secure its third straight win over the Wolfpack in the regular season finale for both teams at Kenan Stadium (12:30 ET/ACCN). From a wins and losses perspective, the 2014 season has represented a vast improvement for N.C. State. Last season marked a low point for program as the Wolfpack finished with a dreadful 3-9 record that did not include a single victory in ACC play. (Inside Carolina)

Williams hardly a 'soft' mark for other UNC quarterback hopefuls

Among the folks who must have been most amused by Hakim Jones’ assertion that Marquise Williams is soft were Mitch Trubisky, Kanler Coker and Caleb Henderson. Those are the three heavily recruited quarterbacks now hopelessly stuck behind Williams, a redshirt junior, on the UNC depth chart. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tar Heels on move for Thanksgiving as Wolfpack looms

Even with Saturday’s impending rivalry home matchup against N.C. State, more than football will be on the minds of many UNC players Thursday as they celebrate Thanksgiving. Those lucky enough to live within about an hour and a half will be able to travel home for a feast with family. Many others will stay in Chapel Hill to celebrate the holiday with teammates or visiting family. (Durham Herald-Sun)
