UNC 42 Clemson 35
The North Carolina Tar Heels avoid the upset bid by the Clemson Tigers and win 42-35. This game went back and forth. The Heels jumped out to an early 21-7 after defense end Quinton Coples intercepted back up quarterback Tajh Boyd(Kyle Parker was injured for the first half early in the ball game)and took it back for a touchdown.
The Tigers came "roaring" back with two scores late in the first half. The score at the half was 21-21. The Tigers get the back at the half and march down the field and score a TD to take a 28-21 lead.
After a long drive of 4 yard runs UNC tailback Jamal Womble plunged into the endzone to tie the score at 28. The Tigers turn around and maul the Tar Heel defense at take another 7 point lead. This time by the score of 35-28.
At this point the Tar Heel defense has been scorced by the Tigers on four consecutive drives and their confidence is missing. Tar Heels QB Bryn Renner leads the Heel on a 1 minute and sixteen second touchdown drive. Running back Hunter Furr crossed the goal line from four yards out to again tie the score.
Cue the Tar Heel defense. From this point on the Heels defense took over the game. They forced the Tigers to punt the ball back to Bryn Renner and the Heels offense. The game plan here was slowly move the ball down the field using the clock and leave Clemson little time on the back end. That plan failed miserablly when Renner caught Clemson in a jailbreak blitz. He fired a lazor beam to wide receiver Dwight Jones. Jones turned his 5 yard hitch route around, the ball was on him and he made 1 man miss and it was nothing but wide open field between him and the end zone. 42-35 Tar Heels.
On the following possession the Tiger were moving the ball rather easy until freshman strong safety Joel Morton intercepted a Kyle Parker deep ball down the right side line. North Carolina then ran out the remaining 3 minutes on the clock and were victorious.
Overall it was a great effort by both teams. The Tar Heels are happy to keep their record undefeated and look forward to next week when they travel to South Bend, Indiana to take on the Notre Dame fighting Irish.
