Eric Ebron's athleticism has drawn comparisons to Vernon Davis. But now, the North Carolina tight end has one up on the NFL Pro Bowler.
Ebron hauled in a 17-yard pass from Marquise Williams in the second quarter Saturday against North Carolina to break Davis' ACC single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end.
Ebron now owns the ACC single-season record for yards by a tight end. Carolina Football (@TarHeelFootball) November 30, 2013Ebron now has 877 yards (and counting), to surpass the 871 Davis posted in 2005.
Considering among the top TEs in the nation, Ebron already holds the Tar Heels career marks for receiving yards at the position.
He has announced he will forgo his senior season and enter the spring's NFL draft.

The loss keeps the Victory Bell away from Chapel Hill for another year
So far most of the UNC fan base is pretty happy with head coach Larry Fedora. The one asterisks could be that the second year head man has lost two times to Duke. Today, at Kenan Stadium, was the second time, as North Carolina (6 & 6 ~ 4-4 ACC) fell to #24 Duke (10 & 2 ~ 6-2 ACC) by the final of 27 to...

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina built its five-game winning streak by limiting its mistakes and capitalizing on its opportunities. The Tar Heels reverted to their early-season form against Duke as various mistakes played a role in Saturday’s 27-25 loss.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina’s quick-strike offense is designed to replicate a two-minute drill on every possession. The Tar Heels’ final drive in Saturday’s loss to Duke, however, ate up clock and ended with an interception.
With each win in a historically successful season, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said his team would have to follow up with an even bigger win the following week.
That approach has brought the No. 24 Blue Devils here, within a win of an improbable Coastal Division championship and a ticket to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. It all depends on whether they can beat surging...
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – No. 16 North Carolina has recently relied on role players to elevate their play in the absence of P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald. J. P. Tokoto became the third Tar Heel in as many games to answer that charge in UNC’s 63-59 loss at UAB on Sunday.
On Saturday the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels will tangle in a match-up of two ACC schools.

The Odds: The North Carolina Tar Heels are...
