Final Score: North Carolina 48, Virginia Tech 34
Virginia Tech attempted to make this game exciting over the last five minutes, but Logan Thomas was sacked on a fourth-down play deep in North Carolina territory. The drive was helped by a Tar Heel pass interference penalty, but no harm came from the foul.
The game was sloppy overall. North Carolina managed to dominate despite committing 15 accepted penalties for 126 yards. Virginia Tech helped out with a pair of turnovers.
Both teams had a kickoff return for a touchdown but in the end there was too much Giovani Bernard. He gained 262 yards on 23 carries.
