  North Carolina's rushing performance against Miami was unlike any seen in the Football Bowl Subdivision in three seasons. Led by Michael Carter and Javonte Williams, the Tar Heels piled up 554 yards on the ground in their 62-26 win over Miami on Saturday, the most since Navy had 569 against Cincinnati on Sept. 23, 2017. North Carolina averaged 10 yards per carry on 55 attempts; Navy averaged 7.9 on 72 attempts against Cincinnati. Carter finished with 308 yards and two touchdowns and Williams had 236 yards and three TDs. Their combined 544 yards set the NCAA record for rushing by two teammates, beating the 506 by Buffalo's Jaret Patterson (409) and Kevin Marks (97) against Kent State two weeks earlier. Carter and Williams were the seventh pair in FBS history to go for 200 yards in the same game. - AP College Football

  Michael Carter rushed for three touchdowns and Sam Howell threw for two touchdowns as North Carolina rolled past Western Carolina 49-9 in its home finale Saturday. North Carolina (7-3, No. 17 CFP) built a 42-3 halftime lead against the Football Championship Subdivision opponent. Nine different players caught passes from Howell, who was 20 of 23 for 287 yards before sitting out the second half. Those connections included a 22-yard hook-up to Antoine Green, who made his first catch of the season on the first-quarter play, and a 26-yard strike to Dazz Newsome with 49 seconds left in the first half.

The Tar Heels picked up 16 first downs after just 26 snaps on offense. They topped the 40-point mark for the sixth time this year. Carter ran for first-quarter touchdowns of 17 and 22 yards and then a second-quarter score from 5 yards out. Javonte Williams (3 yards) and D.J. Jones (2 yards) also had touchdown runs. Western Carolina (0-3) completed an abbreviated fall slate with its third lopsided loss. Paxton Robertson’s 40-yard field goal gave the Catamounts their first first-quarter points of the season, closing the gap to 7-3 at the time. A fake field goal failed in the third quarter. Linebacker Nigel Manns scored on a 42-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter. - North Carolina/AP College Football

  The Heels' running game that ranked tied for second in the ACC with 233 yards per game, was held to a season-low 87 yards and just 2.9 yards per carry. Both of those numbers were right around the average the Irish's top-ranked rush defense has allowed per game. Neither Michael Carter's speed nor Javonte Williams' power could provide enough substantial runs through that interior line. Carter had a 26-yard run on his first carry and later had a 16-yard run. But those were the exceptions. He finished with just 15 more yards on six carries combined.

Williams entered the game leading the nation with 18 rushing touchdowns and 62 avoided tackles. But he managed just 28 yards, which like Carter, was a season low. "They had a good defensive line all the way across the board," Carter said. "They have a lot of athletes that you'll see at the next level." That inability to run underlined the Heels' fourth quarter struggles. Play-action passes were deemed ineffective. And forget about trying to have Howell in a five-step drop -- two of the six sacks by the Irish came in the fourth. "Unless we could run the ball well enough in this game, we knew that we couldn't protect well enough to get the ball downfield," Brown said. "And we had to throw the ball to win the game." - Raleigh News Observer

  The Tar Heels (3-0, 3-0 ACC) should certainly be confident going into Saturday's game against Florida State and not just because of their early success. The Seminoles (1-3, 0-3) currently rank last in the ACC in scoring defense, allowing 37.2 points per game. Longo said the Tar Heels' staff allows players to voice what plays they like best, which has helped lead to their success starting games. Longo said they tend to run those plays early on to establish a tempo. Howell is 14 of 18 passing on first drives for 181 yards and two touchdowns. Carter and junior running back Javonte Williams have combined to rush 13 times for 96 yards and a touchdown on first possessions.

Carolina is 7 for 8 in third down conversions. The Heels didn't get a third-and-20 against Syracuse, but converted a four-and-7 with an 18-yard reception by senior wide receiver Dazz Newsome. "I always ask our guys for their top 10 plays, a lot of that input from them goes into our little checklists for the opening drive," he said. The Heels seem to have that checklist down pat, now they have to focus on keeping that same energy throughout the game. Their 56-45 win over VT was the first game they felt the offense stayed in sync for the better part of the game. Against the Orange and Eagles, it was a bit disjointed. "We do start fast and we do finish fast," Carter told reporters in a video conference. "I think where our point of emphasis that we need to get better on is the second and third quarter." - Raleigh News Observer

  North Carolina's 56-45 win over then-No. 19 Virginia Tech marked the most points the Tar Heels have scored against an opponent in the AP Top 25.
