ICTV: UNC RB Elijah Hood Punches It In

North Carolina's win over N.C. A&T featured two Elijah Hood touchdown runs out of the goal line offense.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Elijah Hood didn't have big yardage numbers against N.C. A&T on Saturday night, but it was his two one-yard runs that spoke the loudest.

Coming off a loss against South Carolina in which the sophomore running back's absence at a key point was a bigger topic of conversation than his career-high numbers, his use at the goal line against A&T made the biggest statement.

North Carolina two red zone possessions in the first quarter utilized a goal line personnel and play call, featuring Hood in the backfield.

"That's our goal line package," Hood said. "We're very comfortable with it. I was happy that we finally started using it."

Both possessions ended with one-yard touchdown runs by Hood.

"It was great to get in there and punch it in," he said. "I know we can do it - we have a big, strong offensive line. I have full faith in those guys.

"Any time they want to dial up that play, we can definitely get it."
