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)

Pregame rhetoric has State-UNC sounding like a rivalry again

One of the best things about rivalry games is that there’s already enough motivation to go around without worrying about providing the other side with bulletin board material. That means players can say pretty much whatever they want during the week preceding the big game without worrying too much about its effect on an already fired-up opponent. (Wilmington Star News)

Dre' Bly To Be Honored At Halftime

North Carolina and The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame will jointly honor Dré Bly with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute on Nov. 29 in Chapel Hill during the game between North Carolina and NC State.

Quinshad Davis Eyeing UNC Career Touchdown Mark

Wide receiver Quinshad Davis’s perseverance throughout a trying 2014 season has the junior just one touchdown reception shy of tying the North Carolina school record. Former Tar Heel Hakeem Nicks set the career touchdown record (21) back in 2008, and with rival N.C. State coming to town, Davis knows how special it would be to match the Tar Heel great on Saturday. (Inside Carolina)
