Music City Bowl Video: Watch UNC End This Nashville Thriller in 2OT

Adam LazarusSenior Analyst IDecember 31, 2010

The Music City Bowl video showcases a wild finish to a great game that took place last night in Nashville. 

At LP Field, in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, the 7-5 North Carolina Tar Heels and the 6-6 Tennessee Volunteers traded scores all evening at LP Field. Four different times the game was tied thanks to a several big plays on both sides. 

A 38-yard touchdown run from senior Shaun Draughn, a 39-yard touchdown pass from senior T.J. Yates to sophomore Erik Highsmith and two field goals by junior Casey Barth gave the Tar Heels a 17-14 halftime lead over their neighbor to the West. 

But late in the fourth quarter, the Vols freshman wide receiver, Justin Hunter, capped off a 10-play, 63-yard drive with an eight-yard touchdown catch from fellow freshman, Tyler Bray, to give first year head Coach Derek Dooley's team a 20-17 lead. 

Tennessee seemed to have the win locked up when the Tar Heels, driving for a game-tying field goal, couldn't stop the clock in the final seconds.

But, as's Chris Low explained, "...the officials put one second back on the clock after a review from the booth determined there was still one second remaining when North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates spiked the ball. The Tar Heels were penalized for having too many men on the field when their field goal team tried to run onto the field, but they still got one last play because there's no 10-second runoff in college football similar to the NFL."

With one second remaining, Barth nailed a 23-yarder to tie up the game, forcing overtime. 

The teams traded touchdowns in the first extra period, a one-yard Yates touchdown run, matched then by a 20-yard touchdown pass from Bray to senior tight end Luke Stocker. 

On the ensuing possession, Bray then threw an interception at the UNC 13 yard line, allowing Barth to end the game three plays later with a 23-yard field goal.
