Virginia falls at UNC, notes

On what appeared to be the final play of the game, UNC punter David Woolridge got off a career-best 67-yard punt. The game appeared over but UNC junior Mike Mason raced to the ball at the UVa 20 and kicked it as time expired. He was called for a penalty. β€œI was shocked. When I kicked it, I was running and I looked at the clock,” Mason told reporters. β€œIt had zeros. I seen people running on the field as I was running down the field. So I kicked the ball. I figured the game was over.” Not so fast. The Tar Heels were penalized half the distance to the goal for illegal touching. UNC ran a flawless fourth-down kneel the second time around.
