Extra Points: Balancing Act

Calls Lift Up 'Quise

"I got a text from Peyton (Manning) saying, 'Give me a call,'" Williams recalled after Tuesday's practice. "He called and we talked about the game. I got a call from (former Tar Heel and current Ravens QB) Bryn Renner, Josh Dobbs at Tennessee, Cody Kessler at USC, Dk Prescott (Mississippi State). "Those guys told me to keep my head up. Those guys know what it's like paying the quarterback position." (Tar Heel Illustrated)

The success of the UNC O-line, running game

The Tar Heels rushed for 208 yards against South Carolina. Elijah Hood rushed 12 times for 138 yards (11.5 yard average), T.J. Logan carried it seven times for 37 yards (5.5 yard average), and Romar Morris had two runs for 20 yards (10 yard average). A big reason for the success was the work of the offensive line: Jon Heck, Landon Turner, Lucas Crowley, Caleb Peterson, and Bentley Spain. (Carolina Blue)

Hard work pays off for UNC football player Bug Howard

From the final whistle of 2014, through the spring and summer, UNC wide receiver Bug Howard worked. Thursday night, in UNC’s 17-13 loss against South Carolina, a bigger, faster, better Howard displayed the fruits of that work. The junior played the best game of his career, snagging six passes for 114 yards to set new career highs and scoring the first touchdown of UNC’s season. (Daily Tar Heel)

Deafening crowd drowns UNC football's offensive line

UNC's entire offensive line struggled to communicate in the Tar Heels' 17-13 loss to South Carolina on Thursday. But in a neutral-site showdown in Charlotte, the Tar Heels were taken aback by the decidedly one-sided crowd. “(When) the crowd is supposed to be somewhat split, you don’t go in anticipating that it’s going to be one of the loudest games you’ve played in,” Jon Heck said.
