Williams. North Carolina Rout Old Dominion 80-20

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Marquise Williams threw five first-half touchdown passes and T.J. Logan scored four touchdowns to help North Carolina to a record-setting 80-20 victory over Old Dominion on Saturday.

The Tar Heels set all-time records for points and touchdowns by the midpoint of the third quarter, and Williams set the single-game record for total yards on the Tar Heels' fourth snap of the second half.

Just two of North Carolina's 11 TDs came on possessions longer than 1 minute, 44 seconds. The fourth quarter was shortened from 15 minutes to 10.

Williams finished 20 of 27 passing for 409 yards and rushed for 60 more, helping North Carolina to a school-record 721 yards.

The Tar Heels (6-5) became bowl-eligible with their fifth consecutive victory, their longest streak since 2001. The Monarchs (8-4), in a transition season from the Football Championship Subdivision to Football Bowl Subdivision, had their four-game win streak snapped.
