Larry Fedora, UNC Focused on NC State

With the arrival of rivalry week, and a chance at the rare state championship looming, Larry Fedora had nothing but nice things to say about the N.C. State Wolfpack in his weekly press conference. “What makes college football and sports so much fun is that you have these rivalries, especially these regional rivalries,” said Fedora on Monday.

No. 11 UNC keeps focus on NC State, not year-old trash talk

Marquise Williams insists he doesn't have a score to settle with rival North Carolina State. The North Carolina quarterback has more important things to worry about than trash talk. His 11th-ranked Tar Heels (10-1, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are in the midst of the program's best season in nearly two decades. "Last year's team was last year," Williams said Monday.

ACC Football Championship Game Sold Out

The 2015 ACC Football Championship Game is sold out. This year’s game is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, Dec. 5 at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium. The top-ranked and undefeated Clemson Tigers are the Atlantic Division Champion and will face the Coastal Division Champion and 11th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. (The ACC)

NC State’s Doeren stands by comments after last year’s win over UNC

Was NC State football coach Dave Doeren being a bit too chesty about a big win over the Pack’s rivals and UNC coach Larry Fedora? More so, does he now regret saying so much with UNC coming to Carter-Finley Stadium this week with a 10-1 record, ranked 11th nationally, having clinched the Coastal Division? “No, I don’t think so,” Doeren said Monday. (Charlotte Observer)

Video: UNC Football All-Access vs. Virginia Tech - 2015 Coastal Division Champs

The Tar Heels won their 10th game in a row and clinched the Coastal Division Title with a 30-27 OT victory in Blacksburg on Nov. 21, 2015. Go into the locker room before and after the big game to hear motivational speeches and to see the trophy presentation. View Video...

Elijah Hood talks emotions of win, season

Football is a powerful game. It brings out emotions that you never thought were possible. The combination of a year's worth of preparation, a lifetime of work, the thrill of victory, and the satisfaction of accomplishment can do a lot to a man's heart. After Saturday's 30-27 win over Virginia Tech, UNC running back Elijah Hood stood to the side on a nondescript room underneath a quiet and then dark Lane Stadium. (Carolina Blue)

Jets waive former 1st-round pick Quinton Coples

The New York Jets waived outside linebacker Quinton Coples on Monday, three years after he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the team announced. Coples, 25, was considered one of the premier pass rushers in a 2012 NFL Draft class that featured Bruce Irvin, Chandler Jones and Whitney Mercilus. (SB Nation)

Larry Fedora continues piling up aces

Credit Larry Fedora and his staff for surviving. His three previous UNC teams probably would not have been up to closing out such a tense, important game. The trip to N.C. State on Saturday will be the game of the year (so far) for both sides and as much as UNC needs to win to keep its wildest dreams flickering, the outcome at Virginia Tech should ease some of the pressure.

UNC/ACC Bowl Selection Order

As No. 11 North Carolina’s win total continues to increase, a detailed look at the ACC’s bowl selection process is in order. The ACC champion will play in the playoff if it is ranked Nos. 1-4 in the College Football Playoff’s final rankings on Dec. 6. The CFP Selection Committee will announce the playoff participants at 2:45pm. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Winning The Hard Way

Ten straight wins and going to Charlotte to play top-ranked Clemson, which trust me does not want to face 11th-ranked Carolina in what will be a wild scene at Bank of American Stadium. Before that comes N.C. State, and as tight as the Tar Heels were Saturday in the foothills, they should be loose and ready to take on the Wolfpack in the fairgrounds. (Chapelboro.com)

Narrow win won't doom North Carolina's playoff hopes

So, did a three-point win on the road in an emotion-filled environment, in a game North Carolina led by 14 with less than five minutes to play, really hurt UNC’s playoff hopes? The Tar Heels are playing to an inside straight to begin with. The selection committee’s routine undervaluation of their work is clear, and so there may not be any true path to the playoff by the metrics used inside that room. (ESPN.com)

ACC sets plans for security, alcohol sales at football title game

The ACC has announced policies that will be in effect for football championship game on Dec. 5 at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium. The sale of beer and wine to those of legal age will be extended to all ticketed customers. These beverages have been sold in premium areas at ACC Championship events for several years. (Greensboro News & Record)

Exit Sandman, enter a new Coastal champ

The Tar Heels’ defense took center stage in Saturday’s Coastal Division clinching win at Virginia Tech. LB Shakeel Rashad had 15 tackles, DT Nazair Jones caused a pivotal fumble and CBs Des Lawrence and M.J. Stewart each intercepted passes for a unit that carried its team all day and forced a three-and-out in overtime to set up the victory. (Wilmington Star News)

Extra Points: Against All Odds

Hollywood would have scripted it differently, of course, John Wayne killing the bad guy and getting the girl in the end, Frank Beamer rallying from the grave and winning with a blocked punt at the end. Instead, it was the Tar Heels who blocked a punt that led to three points, just another of the delicious ironies that played out against the odds. (GoHeels.com)

In his hands, Marquise Williams delivers division title for North Carolina

It would have been easy to lose faith in UNC quarterback Marquise Williams as he fumbled his way around Lane Stadium on Saturday afternoon. But with a chance to win and send the Tar Heels to the ACC championship game, Williams needed to make one perfect throw. That’s just how he wanted it. “I knew I couldn’t let the guys down again,” Williams said. (Burlington Times News)
