North Carolina looks to continue their winning ways next game with a battle against Georgia Tech. Virginia will aim to get back on the winning track vs. Louisville.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — After being embarrassed at home in a 31-point loss to Virginia Tech two weeks ago, North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora knew he couldn’t play the injury card to excuse his team’s poor performance.

Despite having a bevy of injuries on both sides of the ball, the Tar Heels bounced back and knocked off Miami last week and continued their momentum Saturday.

No. 22 North Carolina extended its winning streak to seven over longtime rival Virginia with a 35-14 victory at Scott Stadium.

“It’s tough winning games on the road especially in league play,” Fedora said. “I was really pleased with the way our guys played. I thought we played with a lot of energy and a lot of excitement tonight throughout the entire game.”

The Tar Heels won their second straight game to remain in the hunt in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division. In a rivalry that dates to 1892, they now own the series’ second-longest winning streak.

After leading by just seven coming out of halftime, North Carolina (6-2, 4-1 ACC) turned the ball over on its first possession of the second half, but recovered and got its offense rolling to claim the 21-point win.

“UNC executed longer and more effectively than us,” Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall said. “The game was really tight at halftime and then they were able to sustain drives and execute when needed.”

Virginia (2-5, 1-2) was held to under 300 yards of total offense by a defense that was already missing some key parts in its linebacking corps.

“Their (the Tar Heels’) program is currently more mature and farther along than ours,” Mendenhall said. “That was reflected as the game continued to go on. We need to continue to mature and continue to grow and stay together.”

The Tar Heels racked up just shy of 500 yards of total offense as quarterback Mitch Trubisky paced attack with 310 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Running back Elijah Hood ran for 107 yards and a touchdown while North Carolina’s wide receivers continued their production even without Mack Hollins, who was lost for the season last week.

Ryan Switzer and Bug Howard combined for 15 receptions for 181 yards for the Tar Heels. Howard also caught a touchdown pass, giving him a team-high four on the season.

“Bug wanted to honor Mack (Hollins) with his play and he did a great job of that,” Fedora said of his senior wideout. “He played really well and Bug has been able to make those plays all year. I thought today they gave Bug the opportunity to get open and Mitch found him.”

The Tar Heels seemingly put the game away late in the third quarter when running back T.J. Logan found the end zone from four yards out to extend the North Carolina lead to 28-7. After Virginia cut the deficit back to 14, Trubisky found wide receiver Austin Proehl on a 46-yard touchdown pass to put the final nail in the Cavaliers’ coffin.

Virginia quarterback Kurt Benkert managed just 126 yards through the air. The Cavaliers were led by running back Taquan Mizzell, who ran for 106 yards, and caught seven passes for 25 yards.

Virginia averaged just three yards per play while North Carolina racked up 7.3 yards per play en route to a 488-yard day on offense.

After both teams struggled on offense out of the gate, North Carolina got on the board first late in the first quarter with a 4-yard touchdown run by Hood.

Virginia used a trick play to tie the game. Backup quarterback Matt Johns found tight end Evan Butts on an 11-yard touchdown out of a field goal formation.

North Carolina responded with a trick play of its own as Trubisky found Howard on a 40-yard touchdown pass after a double reverse.

North Carolina led 14-7 at the halftime break.

Virginia looks to slow down Louisville next week when it hosts the Cardinals while North Carolina has a bye week.
