  • Virginia Tech beats UNC 22-19

Larry Fedora held his fingers about an inch apart following Saturday's 22-19 loss to Virginia Tech.

North Carolina couldn't get off the field when it needed to most.

"It takes one guy making one play in this ballgame, and it's different".

North Carolina running back Michael Carter gained 165 yards on 18 carries. A win against the Tar Heels (1-3, 1-1) will improve the Hokies to 9-1 under Fuente in the game following a loss.

One of those came in their last trip to Chapel Hill, a 34-3 win against the Tar Heels in 2016 played in monsoon-like conditions from the remnants of Hurricane Matthew. "We come in here and we're happy", he said. "We've got to find a way to get a guy to make a play in a certain situation". "Just had to stay within ourselves and make some plays", said Hokies quarterback Ryan Willis.

North Carolina quarterback Cade Fortin (6) runs the ball while Virginia Tech's Dylan Rivers (44) looks to tackle him during the first half of an NCAA college football game in Chapel Hill, N.C., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018.

"If they want to say it doesn't count because it was in the rain, then that's up to them, but we know that we won the game", Tech offensive lineman Kyle Chung said. "We've got to find a way to get it done". And when the light has been green, the Tar Heels have had trouble accelerating.

A third-and-15 play that covered 80 yards on a pass from Elliott to tight end Carl Tucker appeared huge for the Tar Heels.

And yet, despite all that, they only scored one touchdown.

North Carolina kicker Freeman Jones made four field goals, matching a single-game school record with six attempts.

UNC's next drive began with a false start, then another sack on Fortin, and ended on a missed 43-yard field goal attempt (wide left).

Best case, all countries will probably experience a slight increase in lifespan over the next two decades. Fifty-nine countries, including China, are projected to surpass a life expectancy of 80 years by 2040.

It stemmed from shaky quarterback play as the carousel continued when Cade Fortin made his first career start. "If we don't make a couple of mistakes, we win that game".

The Hokies (4-2, 3-0 ACC) were on the verge of going down two scores with about 6 minutes left when they forced UNC tailback Michael Carter into a fumble as he neared the goal line.

The offense, however, was only able to take partial advantage of the situation.

Jones missed another field goal in the third quarter and made another field goal in the fourth, to make it 19-14.

Although the field goal put UNC ahead 9-7, the possession proved costly when Fortin was injured scrambling for yardage on a third down play.

After fellow quarterback Chazz Surratt's season-ending injury was announced this past week, UNC turned to the true freshman who showed off a big arm in passing for 97 yards on a 10-for-18 effort.

Carter's fumble stood out, but there was also a dropped wide-open deep ball by Dazz Newsome for what should've been an 85-yard second-quarter score and Nathan Elliott missing a completely-alone Anthony Ratliff-Williams with a bad throw on what should've been a 17-yard TD in the third. That was still the score when UNC took over again with nine minutes to play in the game. "He was lower than me".

"I don't even worry about the stats man".

"It's tough sitting there watching it happen", Elliott said.

And yet, the Hokies hung in — then pounced when they got a chance to snatch the game away.

That, linebacker Cole Holcomb said, still doesn't let the defense off the hook for failing to get one last stop. "It's just finish the game".
