Tar Heels safety Deunta Williams said he can't remember having such a fun bus ride home - and for good reason. UNC's 20-17 upset of then-No. 14 Virginia Tech on Thursday put Carolina back in the bowl hunt. With home games against Duke and Miami, and road games at Boston College and N.C. State, the Tar Heels must win two of their last four to become bowl eligible. "Our kids gained confidence," coach Butch Davis said.

North Carolina's stunning win over Virginia Tech on Thursday not only broke a five-game losing streak to the Hokies, it also breathed new life into the Tar Heels' season. UNC now is just two wins from becoming bowl eligible, which seemed like an unattainable goal a week after the Tar Heels blew an 18-point lead to Florida State.

The Devils (5-3, 3-1) sit in second place in the ACC's Coastal Division behind Georgia Tech (8-1, 5-1). They have four games to play, with the next in Chapel Hill against rival North Carolina (5-3, 1-3). The Tar Heels, who are looking to secure their own bowl eligibility, have not lost to the Devils since 2003. Duke players are viewing the Tar Heels as another impediment to a winning season, something they can see just over the horizon.
