Heels fall to WVU with late interception, Woody sounded a bit off today

Hakeem Nicks was red-hot early for North Carolina, but in the end Pat White and West Virginia edged the Heels 31-30 in Charlotte. White went to the air in second half and the Mountaineers picked off a late TJ Yates pass to preserve the win.

Woody Durham our radio voice for the game was calling Pat White, Pat Little in the first quarter and then Bobby Rome became Hakeem Nicks and the game was being played at Charlotte Panthers stadium and it was first and ten from the WVU 49 and that quickly became the West Virginia 40 in reality, plus Nicks was also Cooter Arnold on one occasion.

Woody was really busy with all that offense, but I do believe we as listeners missed a few things during the course of the game, but that’s what happens when you get caught up hanging on the announcer’s every word.

North Carolia finishes at (8-5) and West Virginia closes it out at (9-4).

QB White’s 332 yards fuel WVU win over North Carolina
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Pat White had one more dazzling comeback in him before finishing his record-breaking college career.

White threw for 332 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Alric Arnett midway through the fourth quarter that helped West Virginia to a 31-30 win over North Carolina on Saturday in the Meineke Bowl.

The senior quarterback was voted MVP of a bowl for the third straight year and finished 4-0 in postseason games, helping West Virginia (9-4) overcome Hakeem Nicks’ big day for North Carolina to end a disappointing season on a positive note.

Nicks caught eight passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns for the Tar Heels (8-5), but T.J. Yates was intercepted by Pat Lazear with under 2 minutes left to preserve West Virginia’s win.
