Triangle players honored by ACC after Saturday sweep

Posted October 8, 2012

— After a Triangle sweep on Saturday with North Carolina, North Carolina State and Duke all winning at home, each team was honored with representatives on the ACC Players of the Week list.

Giovani Bernard was named the conference’s Offensive Back of the Week after a career day in which he racked up 262 rushing yards on 23 carries with a pair of touchdowns. The total was the most ever against Virginia Tech and the fifth highest total in school history.

NC State’s Thomas Teal had two tackles for loss and was part of a defense that had four sacks as he was named the ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week.

Duke’s Walt Canty was named the ACC Defensive Back of the Week after a 14-tackle performance that included three tackles for loss.

Sean Tapley, from UNC, was also named the specialist of the week by accumulating 152 return yards on four tries including a 94-yard return for a touchdown. The return for score was the first surrendered by Virginia Tech in an FBS-record 237 consecutive games.

Other ACC weekly winners were Clemson offensive lineman Tyler Shatley and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins as well as Maryland freshman Stefon Diggs.

    He's always drunk, high or sucking his mother's thumb in the basement. We really shouldn't respond to embiciles.

    GO HEELS....now the most honest program in the country.

    Thank you. Thae defense has to step it up. It's do or die right now. We've had a good run in the ACC, but this year is unlike all others. We still have Clemson and Miami away. The only game is Duke.

    if the wolfpack show up on 10/27 in chapel hill and like they did against FSU, should be a walk in the park for UNC.....better bring your "A" game state.

    I was remiss. I think that UNC will beat Miami. They have a huge confidence builder after beating VT. The secondary needs work, but everything else is pretty solid. Our OL couldn't get our backs to gain 100 yards against Richmond Senior High School. Dismal. I don't even know why our OC and Mike O'Cain even tries to run up the center of a defense. The sad thing is that Frank Beamer allows them to do this in every game this season. Courage. Interstional fortitude goes a long way for me. Ol Frank is feeling some heat up there right now. I'm glad too. It obvious to me and a bunch that gives some monies to our school, that things are not right with our football program. No team slips this suddenly.

    Why don't you go find your troll hole and crawl back in it.

    As a UNC fan who also pulls for State (when they're not playing UNC), I would have expected Glennon to get some talk for the way he stood in there and just tore FSU apart in the second half. I can guarantee you he impressed some NFL scouts. And that's not to take away from the O-line or the defense, but he was impressive.

    Yeah, because the things that have come out of Chapel Hill the last 2.5 years are totally like killing millions of innocent people...and you people smack on Roy for comparing a ball game to a natural disaster in Haiti.
