Carolina Becomes Bowl Eligible With Win Over NC State, 41-10

RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina is headed back to a bowl game in the first year of Mack Brown's second stint as coach after Javonte Williams scored two touchdowns rushing and another receiving in the third quarter Saturday night to spark a 41-10 win over rival N.C. State.

The Tar Heels (6-6, 4-4 ACC) trailed 10-6 at halftime before Williams busted free up the middle for a 26-yard scoring run on UNC's second possession of the second half to give his team the lead for good. On the Tar Heels' next two possessions, Williams caught an 11-yard flare pass for a touchdown and scored on a 6-yard run as UNC stretched its lead.
