DURHAM, NC --- Duke became bowl eligible for the first time since 1994 with 33-30 victory over North Carolina on Saturday night.
Duke beat the Tar Heels after Jamison Crowder caught a touchdown pass with 13 seconds left, which ended a three-touchdown run by the hard-charging Tar Heels.
Here are the grades for Dukes sixth win in eight tries and UNCs third defeat in eight games:
UNC offense: The Tar Heels finally woke up in the fourth quarter and made a run at the Devils by scoring 21 of their 30 points in the period. Gio Bernard (143 yards and a score rushing, 68 yards receiving and a score receiving) played well pretty much throughout, but UNCs otherwise sluggish ways proved costly. UNC finished converting just 4 of 15 3rd-down situations even though it made good on all four of its fourth down attempts. Grade: C.
Duke offense: Sean Renfree (23-36, 276 yards and the game-winning touchdown) was very good in stretches, but what won the game for Duke was its excellent ground attack....
