Darian Durant was once again named ACC Rookie of the Week.
Durant threw for two touchdowns for the fourth time this season, as his North Carolina Tar Heels edged past East Carolina 24-21. Durant was 11 of 17 for 151 yards, throwing for two touchdowns without yielding a sack or interception. With the Tar Heels down 10-0, Durant marched them on a season-long 89 yard touchdown drive that was capped with a 29-yard TD reception by Chelsey Borders. Later in the game, the red shirt freshman from Florence, S.C., threw a 21-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, helping North Carolina to the three point victory margin.
