  Draft Scout by Conference









  North Carolina got the big defensive stop it needed in yet another drama-filled finish. Chazz Surratt picked off Deon Jackson's trick-play pass at the goal line with 14 seconds left, helping the Tar Heels hang on for a 20-17 win on Saturday night that reclaimed the rivalry's Victory Bell. The Blue Devils had pushed from their own 6-yard line after a UNC turnover to inside the UNC 5 with less than a minute to play. But with no timeouts, Jackson took a handoff and attempted a jump-pass while being hit that was snagged by Surratt, the QB-turned-linebacker who had leapt to deflect the ball but instead ended up corralling it for a game-saving takeaway.

Surratt said the Tar Heels (4-4, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) had discussed that the play could be coming during a timeout only moments before. "We were expecting it," Surratt said. "I thought he'd throw it a little higher and jumped. It came right to me. I just wanted to get it and make sure I got the ball in my hands and (get) on the ground." It was another close-call win for a UNC team that has played seven games decided by six or fewer points, with each being decided in the final 80 seconds. "We're TV darlings because we come down to the last drive on every game we've play but one," UNC coach Mack Brown said. "And this, again the last play." The Tar Heels celebrated by sprinting across the field as time expired to reclaim the Victory Bell that had been in Duke's possession the past three seasons. - North Carolina/AP College Football
