UNC Slams Georgia Southern 42-12

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Ryan Houston rushed for three touchdowns and Quan Sturdivant returned a fumble 49 yards for a score, one of six turnovers forced by North Carolina during a 42-12 rout of Georgia Southern on Saturday.

Bruce Carter brought back an interception 41 yards for a TD and the defense set up two quick scoring drives with takeaways for North Carolina (4-2).

Houston scored on rushes of 1, 1 and 7 yards. Shaun Draughn added a 16-yard touchdown run for the Tar Heels. They led 42-7 at halftime -- their highest-scoring first half in nine years -- and held the Eagles to 170 total yards and 75 through the air.

Adam Urbano had a 45-yard TD rush -- the longest allowed this season by North Carolina's stingy defense -- for Georgia Southern (3-3).
