Thanks to Gio Bernard, North Carolina ended a five year drought in their series against in-state rival N.C. State. In addition to leading the Tar Heels in rushing (23 carries, 135 yards, two touchdowns) and receiving (eight catches, 95 yards), the redshirt sophomore running back returned a punt 73 yards for a game-winning touchdown with just 13 seconds left in regulation.
If you watch to the end of the video there is a replay with audio from the Tar Heels Sports Network's Jones Angell and a pretty great "No he's not! Yes he is!" call.
