Tar Heels Top Duke 37-21

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Dwight Jones had three touchdown catches while redshirt freshman Giovani Bernard ran for a season-high 165 yards and a score to help North Carolina beat Duke 37-21 on Saturday.

Jones finished with 10 catches for 101 yards to set a school single-season record for receptions, while Bernard had a season-high 30 carries and finished with 222 total yards to lead the Tar Heels (7-5, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Bryn Renner also threw for 274 yards and tied a school single-season record for TD passes, helping UNC beat the Blue Devils (3-9, 1-7) for the eighth straight year.

North Carolina also capitalized on four turnovers, getting a pair of field goals and Jones' 8-yard scoring catch midway through the fourth quarter following those miscues.

Sean Renfree threw a pair of touchdown passes for Duke, though coach David Cutcliffe went with mobile backup Anthony Boone for most of the second half.

        Tarhole is correct when referring to UNC, aka Little San Francisco, aka UNC Berkley East, what else do you need Billy. They cheat, and still can't win in football, unless they play Duke, next to last in their own division, lol, the Tarhole Way
