The North Carolina defense again turned in a performance that will go underappreciated because of the foibles of the offense. The defense allowed only 11 Duke first downs, and only 244 net yards. Aside from a reverse run by Duke in the fourth quarter, the defense -- playing undermanned -- stymied the Duke offense all day. The backbone demonstrated by the defense was on full display during a fourth quarter drive by Duke that might have put UNC away for good.
