UNC scores touchdown on wild trick play

  The Tar Heels pulled off an unbelievable trick play to score against Virginia.

No. 22 North Carolina found themselves tied with rival Virginia at a touchdown a piece with just over three minutes to go in the first half. Of course, the Heels' head coach Larry Fedora couldn't let the Cavaliers stay close for long; so, he dialed up an undefinable trick play.

That's right, UNC running back T.J. Logan lined up in the wildcat formation and took the snap. However, Logan did not run, or pass; he handed the ball off to the wideout Ryan Switzer. Switzer then tossed the ball back to quarterback Mitch Trubisky who had originally lined up as a reciever. And, finally, Trubisky launched a 40-yard pass to wide out Bug Howard for the score.

Even sweeter, Howard was wearing No. 13, which normally belongs to UNC wide reciever Mack Hollins, who suffered a season-ending broken collarbone last week against Miami.

The Heels lead Virginia 14-7 at halftime.
