Will Shipley and Phil Mafah carried the offense by combining for 210 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the victory. Meanwhile, the defense did an effective job at limiting explosive plays from Tar Heels QB Drake Maye.
South Carolina (5-6, 3-5 SEC) was able to keep its bowl eligibility hopes alive with a 17-14 victory over Kentucky on Saturday. Both teams sputtered on offense in this one but Spencer Rattler was able to find Xavier Legette for the go-ahead touchdown pass midway through the fourth.
