Five With Fedora: The Citadel Game

Coaches always seem to look at games like the one you had with The Citadel as scary propositions even with the overwhelming odds in your favor. Do you fall into that camp? Larry Fedora: “Yes, I do. You always get concerned with how your guys are going to approach a game like this. Anybody can beat you on the right day. I don’t take winning for granted." (GoHeels.com)

Chansky’s Notebook: Let’s Go To The Tape!

All Carolina’s football team has to do to determine whether it can lose to N.C. State in Friday’s regular season finale is put on the tape of two years ago in Kenan Stadium. The most embarrassing loss in Larry Fedora’s otherwise exciting career at UNC was that 35-7 wipeout to the Pack, when Jacoby Brissett led his team to a 21-0 halftime lead. (Chapelboro.com)

Bengals' Giovani Bernard suffers torn ACL in loss

The Cincinnati Bengals' offense is in dire straits after Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills. As if All Pro wide receiver A.J. Green's torn hamstring wasn't devastating enough, tailback Giovani Bernard suffered an ACL tear, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Bernard will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the 2016 season. (NFL.com)

Defensive end Malik Carney making an impact with UNC

North Carolina defensive end Malik Carney has come on in his redshirt sophomore year, playing a prominent role in all eleven games as opposed to his spotty playing time a season ago. A lingering offseason injury to fellow defensive end Dajaun Drennon opened the door for the Virginia native and he has taken advantage of the increased opportunities. (CBS Sports)

Extra Points: Eight Ball

T.J. Logan has worn the number 8 since high school and now through nearly four seasons as a Tar Heel football player. His Twitter handle (@T_Ocho8) doubles up on the digit, with the Spanish version and the numeral itself. Infinite abundance is certainly apropos when considering the career of Logan, who’s now down to one home game left. (GoHeels.com)

Browns honing in on Tar Heels QB Mitch Trubisky in the 2017 NFL Draft

Mitch Trubisky is one of the better prospects in what is perceived as a shallow quarterback class in this year's NFL Draft, and sources said the Cleveland Browns have been particularly impressed by him. The franchise, which relies heavily on analytics, has strong grades on him, and it's not a secret in the scouting community how highly the Browns rate him. (CBS Sports)

Touches are few, but UNC’s Logan has magic touch when they come

Chances don’t come often for one of the fastest and most electrifying runners in the country. Senior running back T.J. Logan, again, didn’t touch the ball much in North Carolina’s 41–7 blowout of The Citadel. But when the football was in Logan’s hands, it wasn’t good for the previously unbeaten Bulldogs (10-1).

ESPN ACC Football Week 12 Power Rankings

There is no longer a debate as to which team deserves to be at the top of the ACC power rankings. Clemson couldn't find a consistent groove, but Louisville was blown out at Houston. 5. North Carolina: It was essentially a bye week for the Tar Heels, as they played an FCS opponent and beat The Citadel 41-7. They should be fresh for next week's game against NC State. (ESPN.com)

ACCXtra Helmet Stickers: Week 10

Dominique Green, UNC: At long last, the Tar Heels have an interception. UNC had been the only team at the FBS level without one until Green picked one off in the second quarter and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown. It was the highlight of the afternoon for a defense that performed relatively well in limiting The Citadel’s strong offense in a 41-7 victory. (Greensboro News & Record)

Tar Heels like rate of interception returns

UNC had been the only team in the nation without an interception this season. Dominquie Green ended the drought with a pick that he returned 58 yards for a touchdown. Fedora joked that UNC is the only team that has returned all of its interceptions for touchdowns. He also played off the idea that the Tar Heels felt pressed to pick off a pass. (Burlington Times News)

UNC Defense Moves From One Challenge to the Next

It wasn’t a poor performance against the Bulldogs, who entered the game averaging an NCAA Division I-leading 360 rushing yards per game. But it was hardly a definitive statement heading into UNC’s critical season finale against N.C. State on Friday. The Tar Heels have been struggling to stop the run late in the season, just as they did a year ago. (Inside Carolina)

Rejuvenated UNC Football Team Demolishes The Citadel 41-7

Having had over a week to process its disappointing loss at Duke last Thursday, the UNC football team found release valve for all of its anger on Saturday in the form of The Citadel. Although the Bulldogs arrived at Kenan Stadium as one of just two undefeated teams in the FCS, the clearly motivated Tar Heels sent them back to Charleston with a 41-7 loss. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC-Citadel: Larry Fedora Postgame Quotes

Larry Fedora: "I’m glad to get that game done. I’m pretty proud of our team. I was pretty worried about that football team. We knew they were a really good football team, that they would control the clock, and our guys were going to have to steal a few possessions. Defensively, we did that. We had four turnovers, which was a tremendous thing." (Inside Carolina)

T.J. Logan on his big day

T.J. Logan on his diving, one-handed touchdown catch: "We had been running that play the whole week and I knew I was going to get a chance at it. Mitch threw a great ball. I thought he threw it kind of far but I but reached my hand out and it just stuck. He gave me a shot and I just tried to make a play. I knew I was going to be open. I just had to make the catch." (Carolina Blue)

UNC players react to first interception of the season

In a game with multiple story lines, none may have been bigger than the interception by North Carolina safety Dominquie Green. Green's 58-yard pick six was the team's first interception of the season. The Tar Heels were the last team in the entire NCAA to record a pick. (Carolina Blue)
