Jackets ready for key ACC showdown

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - North Carolina and Georgia Tech are stuck in the muddled mess of the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division standings. Both the 19th-ranked Tar Heels and No. 22 Yellow Jackets know the only way to come out on top is to keep winning.

When they meet today, the teams find themselves among five two-loss teams in the race to reach the league championship game.

He took it and ran with it - for 29 yards and good football field position.
