Marquise Williams has 1,521 yards of total offense in the past four games, 200 more than any previous UNC player. “I really think it’s more of just, he’s gotten into a pretty good rhythm and he feels comfortable,” Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora said.

Logan: UNC's offense has to overcome its defense

For UNC to win back-to-back games and pull to 2-2 in the Coastal Division, the Tar Heels will need to continue to rely on quarterback Marquise Williams and its offense, former ECU and NFL coach Steve Logan said.

Offensive line peaking ahead of UVa. game

UNC's offensive line showed the makings of a complete unit against Notre Dame but didn’t fully put everything together — a run game coupled with sufficient pass protection — until the win against Georgia Tech. “I think we put together a complete game,” Landon Turner said. “That was what was different. We finally starting establishing the run game." (Carolina Blue)
