North Carolina has a 21-10 lead over Minnesota at the break.

It was a dominant opening 2 quarters for the Tar Heels as they controlled the game from both sides of the ball.

Offensively, Drake Maye was very efficient. He completed 18-of-23 passes for 287 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Omarion Hampton also found the end zone in the first half.

Defensively, North Carolina only gave up 10 points before the break. Minnesota’s field goal came on the heels of Maye’s interception, which gave the Golden Gophers great field position.

Minnesota also scored a touchdown late in the 1st half at the end of a 7-play, 75 yard drive that took just 1:53 off the clock. That’s the lone blemish of the first half for UNC’s defense.

North Carolina is looking to move to 3-0 on the season. The Tar Heels began the year with wins over South Carolina and App State.

This is the first-ever meeting between UNC and Minnesota on the gridiron.
