ACC Football Week 14: Carolina Crap-Out
A week after blowing the doors off of Duke, North Carolina came home and got their doors blown off by NC State.
A team that at one point had lost 12 ACC games in a row under Dave Doeren has won three out of four, with their only loss being to the aforementioned second-best team in the ACC, Georgia Tech.
This was a 35-0 game early in the fourth quarter, with the Heels only scoring a pity touchdown late during garbage time.
In the past, North Carolina’s defense has been a major problem. This time, their offense was as well, as they managed a pitiful 207 yards. NC State, not exactly a blistering offensive team, held the ball for almost 39 minutes.
Jacoby Brissett only threw 11 passes, but three of them were touchdowns. Good work if you can get it.
ACC Football Week 14: We’ve Seen This Movie Before
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Florida State Seminoles walk into a game which gets close, but they find a way to win it at the end.
Once more, the Seminoles pulled a game out of their backsides, holding Florida to only three points after halftime — and scoring just three themselves.
FSU and Florida hardly ate up the other offensively, and Jameis Winston threw four interceptions, but the Seminoles continue to find ways to win, even when all logic would dictate that their luck should have run out a long time ago. Clearly, it has not.
Sayonara, Will Muschamp, and if you have any more Florida players that would like to transfer here before you split, please let us know.
