UNC Gashed on the Ground by Clemson

For 12 games this season, the North Carolina defense bent against the run, but didn’t break. In the second half of UNC’s 45-37 ACC Championship Game loss to Clemson, the defense finally snapped. The Tigers gashed the Tar Heels on the ground for 319 yards, including 170 by sophomore running back Wayne Gallman in the second half. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Post-Clemson Quotes

Larry Fedora: "Clemson was the better team tonight, and they did a heck of a job. Our guys fought all the way to the end and felt like we were in it all the way to the end, and proud of the way we played.” Any comment about the offside call that was made on the onside kick? “I had a chance to look at it, and they missed it. They were wrong. That's all I'm going to say about it. They were wrong.” (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels Have Come So Far But Not Quite Far Enough

Clemson is the #1 team in the country. Before delving into any deep analysis of this game, that is a point that must be factored into the mix. After all, the game is not played in a vacuum and players don't necessarily struggle of their own volition. The other team has something to do with what happens and that was certainly the case Saturday night in UNC's 45-37 loss to Clemson. (Tar Heel Blog)

What the loss means for North Carolina

After holding out hope for a playoff spot with an upset win over Clemson, North Carolina will most likely settle for a spot in the Russell Athletic Bowl, if Florida State and Notre Dame are chosen for New Year’s Six games. But that should not diminish what the Tar Heels accomplished this season. They ran off a school-record 11 straight wins before losing on Saturday night. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Clemson

The amazing thing about UNC’s 45-37 loss to Clemson in the ACC championship game was how close it was, all factors considered. The Tar Heel defense gave up two scoring drives of more than 95 yards. Marquise Williams did not have a vintage day. There were two special teams miscues. And with all that, UNC was one onside kick recovery away from having a chance to tie the game. (GoHeels.com)
