Recap & Analysis: Duke 27, UNC 25

UNC and Duke's season have been opposites in a way. Both teams are fairly evenly-matched across the board. Both teams have average offenses and defenses relative to the rest of college football. But one team is now 10-2 and going to the ACC Championship Game and the other 6-6 and possibly headed to some less than desirable bowl destination. The reason? (Tar Heel Blog)

Video: Eric Ebron 79-yard catch and run vs. Duke

Eric Ebron sets up a North Carolina touchdown with a 79-yard catch and run from quarterback Marquise Williams. This was Ebron's final game in Kenan Stadium as he plans to enter the 2014 NFL Draft. (View Video...)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Duke

Under Larry Fedora, Carolina has made a habit of big special teams play, and they got an outstanding performance from punter Tommy Hibbard on Saturday. But undoubtedly the biggest play of the game was a major breakdown in the kickoff coverage unit, as the Tar Heels allowed a 99-yard return to DeVon Edwards just before halftime. (

No. 24 Duke beats North Carolina 27-25

Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left and No. 24 Duke beat North Carolina 27-25 on Saturday, completing the Blue Devils' improbable run to reach the ACC championship game. Duke will face No. 2 Florida State next weekend in Charlotte, where the heavy underdog Blue Devils will go for their first ACC crown since 1989. Marquise Williams ran for two scores and threw for another for UNC. (

UNC relives plaintive tolling of lost Victory Bell

After Duke defeated North Carolina on a last-minute touchdown pass last season, the Blue Devils sprinted over to the UNC sideline to grab the Victory Bell, paint it Duke blue and ring it as fans poured onto the field at Wallace Wade Stadium. It wasn’t anything UNC left tackle James Hurst wanted to see. “I remember the game ending and then just running off the field into the locker room,” Hurst said. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Reality sets in for Texans backup QB T.J. Yates

T.J. Yates, 26, has been nearly invisible in 2013, recently serving as one of seven Texans game-day inactives while 53 other players take the field. He’s the forgotten quarterback. Buried by the first wave of Case Keenum mania. “It’s obviously a frustrating year for everybody. And I am obviously frustrated as a player. I’d love to get a shot to try to get this team back on track,” Yates said. (Houston Chronicle)

Preview: UNC vs #24 Duke

Will Eric Ebron go out with a bang and in turn push the Heels to a win over Duke? Can Marquise Williams and the offense continue to improve? And can Kareem Martin and the defense shut down Duke's dual-quarterback system? This game is full of questions and should be one to live up to the hype. Prediction: UNC 38 Duke 28 (Tar Heel Blog)

Breakin’ It Down: Duke

Can the Duke secondary hang with the plethora of Carolina receivers for four quarters? Limiting the big plays and forcing the Tar Heels to grind out long drives will be crucial for the Blue Devils’ chances. But if you ask me, I think the Tar Heel offensive explosions continue and Carolina will hang on to reclaim the Victory Bell. Prediction: Tar Heels 38, Duke 31 (

UNC-Duke finally a rivalry in football, too

It seems a little silly to be talking about a rivalry having the life breathed back into it when the neighboring schools involved, North Carolina and Duke, are generally acknowledged to have the best rivalry in college sports. If not all sports. (Wilmington Star News)

Losing The Bell

Brian Chacos' dad, Andy, had played at Carolina back in the '70s, so he knew what the Victory Bell meant. But by the time Brian got to UNC in 2001, the bell had been in the Heels' possession for 11 straight seasons and was starting to get taken for granted. (Chapel Hill Magazine)

Hospital Visit Highlights Thanksgiving

Between a Thursday morning practice as part of their preparation to play Duke on Saturday and a free afternoon to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families, a group of North Carolina football players made a significant detour. (

ACC Week 14: Did you know?

North Carolina: The Tar Heels are 21-2 against Duke in their last 23 meetings, but they dropped last year's contest in Durham, N.C. They have not lost consecutive contests to the Blue Devils since dropping three in a row from 1987-89. (

Tar Heels Look To Bring Back Bell

In 2012, for the first time in nine years, the Carolina football team did not run over to the sidelines for a celebratory ringing of the Victory Bell after beating cross town rival Duke. Instead, the Blue Devils reclaimed the Bell after a last second touchdown gave them a 33-30 victory over UNC. Now, the Tar Heels want it back. (

Countdown to Kickoff: Duke

North Carolina looks to close its regular season on a six-game winning streak on Saturday (12pm/ESPN2) while snapping No. 24 Duke’s seven-game streak and ruining the Blue Devils’ plan for a trip to the ACC title game. It’s been decades since this regular season finale between heated rivals separated by an eight-mile stretch of highway 15-501 has carried such significance. (Inside Carolina)

Duke-UNC Capsule

The last game of the regular season is upon Tar Heel fans. After a dismal 1-5 start, UNC has brought it all together for a chance to end the year 7-5. If that isn't enough the Tar Heels get a chance to ruin their rival Duke's chances of going to an ACC Championship game in Charlotte. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

100th UNC-Duke Meeting Should Be Memorable

The 6-5 Tar Heels will be looking to spoil 9-2 Duke’s hopes of playing in the ACC Championship Game when they take the field at Kenan Stadium Saturday for a noon kickoff. Head Coach Larry Fedora says he’s not surprised at all the success the Blue Devils have been enjoying this season. "If your team keeps believing and keeps playing well, you can put yourself in that position, and that’s what they’ve done.” (

Football Letterman's Roundtable

Quincy Monk on UNC-Duke: "For both teams, this is probably going to be the biggest game they’ve both played in quite some time. You talked about Duke – they’ve got a lot riding on this game. They’re trying to compete and get themselves an ACC Championship game. We’re coming off a five-game winning streak, we are trying to regain our Victory Bell because Duke actually beat us last year." (Inside Carolina)

Football Outreach: Share Your Christmas

With no classes Wednesday and meetings not starting until 2 p.m., several members of the Carolina football team spent the morning shopping and wrapping gifts as part of the Share Your Christmas program. The program pairs a local family with an organization interested in purchasing and delivering new gifts to disadvantaged Durham residents. (
