RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Freshman T.J. Logan ran for a 14-yard touchdown with 11:19 left to help North Carolina beat rival North Carolina State 27-19 on Saturday.

Quinshad Davis had two touchdown catches for the Tar Heels (3-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won in Carter-Finley Stadium for the first time since 2005. Davis' second score came off a 59-yard pass from Ryan Switzer on a trick play, putting UNC ahead for good midway through the second.

Logan's score gave the Tar Heels a cushion that ultimately held up, with A.J. Blue running for a key first down with about 2½ minutes left to help UNC drain the clock on the Wolfpack (3-5, 0-5).

Brandon Mitchell ran for 105 yards and a touchdown to become the first Wolfpack quarterback to crack the 100-yard mark in 37 years, but the Wolfpack couldn't give coach Dave Doeren a winner in his rivalry debut.
