UNC Defense Holds VT In Check This was a big win for UNC, against their first conference opponent of the season. Several key recruits came to campus for a visit, including a TE also interested in VT. The Hokies would win the coin toss and decided to get the ball first. Disaster struck as Leal got sacked for the second time in a row on second and long, he coughed up the ball and DE Justin Thomason scooped it up and stumbled down field for 52 yards and a defensive TD. That would set the tone for this game, and things never got much better for VT. They did manage one TD on the day, after converting a 4th and 3 from their own 35, they went on to score with as Colemon walked right by the defense on a sweep. Unfortunately VT would not find the scoreboard the rest of the game. UNC could never get the run game going against VT's tough defensive line, but Trubisky had his best game yet, absolutely torching the Hokie secondary. His effort and the strong defensive performance put on by UNC was enough to keep the hungry Hokies at bay. GG Bulldog and gl the rest of the way.
