Five With Fedora – Part 10

Williams overcomes turnover deja vu against Virginia Tech

As the ball kept popping loose and the rabid crowd at Lane Stadium roared louder and louder, no one on the North Carolina sideline could shake the feeling of, "Here we go again."

And just like before, it was Williams who was going to be the difference in a Tar Heel win or loss. (Daily Tar Heel)
