Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis converted on 4th and 14 in Miami territory. Then, three plays later, Travis ran for the touchdown and the two-point conversion to give the Seminoles the lead for good.

North Carolina vs. NC State

  • Rivalry Began: October 12, 1894 at North Carolina
  • Rivalry Name: North Carolina-NC State
  • Notable Games:
    • 2016 Week 13 NC State 28-North Carolina 21
    • 2018 Week 13 NC State 34-North Carolina 28
    • 2021 Week 13 NC State 34-North Carolina 30

Rivalry History

In the last week of the 2016 regular season, North Carolina was fighting for the top of the ACC Coastal with Virginia Tech and Miami. Larry Fedora’s Tar Heels hosted the NC State Wolfpack on Friday at Kenan Stadium on the day after Thanksgiving. Unfortunately for the Tar Heel crowd, the Wolfpack surprised everyone, as Matt Dayes led the NC State offense to a 28-7 lead. Dayes rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns, as NC State held on to beat Mitch Trubisky and the Tar Heels, 28-21.

Then in 2018, the North Carolina-NC State game went to overtime in Chapel Hill. This time around, it was a much stronger NC State team taking on a struggling North Carolina squad. The Tar Heels fought hard and tied the contest at 28-28 with just over two minutes left. In overtime, NC State running back Reggie Gallaspy II ran for his fifth touchdown of the day, as NC State won, 34-28.

The Tar Heels won in 2019 and 2020. In 2021, North Carolina looked to win its third straight rivalry game against NC State. The last time UNC accomplished this feat was the stretch from 2004 to 2006. The Tar Heels were leading by nine points late in the contest. NC State quarterback Devin Leary brought the Wolfpack back. He threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Emeka Emezie with 1:35 left. After recovering the onside kick, the Wolfpack did it again. Leary and Emezie connected again for a 24-yard touchdown, and NC State won the 2021 game, 34-30.

Clemson vs. Georgia Tech

  • Rivalry Began: November 24, 1898
  • Rivalry Name: Clemson-Georgia Tech
  • Notable Games:
    • 2014 Week 12 Georgia Tech 28-Clemson 6
    • 2019 Week 1 Clemson 52-Georgia Tech 14
    • 2021 Week 3 Clemson 14-Georgia Tech 8

Rivalry History

In 2014, both teams were ranked when they played. Both teams were on winning streaks, and it was Georgia Tech’s defense that stepped up in the game. Clemson’s quarterback Deshaun Watson left the game with an injury. Cole Stoudt filled in, and the Yellow Jackets returned two of Stoudt’s passes for touchdowns. The win gave Georgia Tech its ninth win of the season, and the Yellow Jackets finished with an 11-3 record that season.

The 2019 matchup was a Thursday night game at Clemson. The Tigers once again had an impressive team after coming off a national championship. Clemson had Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, and Tee Higgins back and they continued their dominance. Lawrence threw for 168 yards and a touchdown, Etienne ran for 205 yards and three touchdowns, and Higgins caught four passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. Clemson won, 52-14.

On September 18, 2021, Clemson hosted Georgia Tech, and it was a low-scoring battle. Unranked Georgia Tech had a chance to win near the end of the game, but it was Clemson’s defense that secured the 14-8 victory for the Tigers. In addition, running back Will Shipley ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the win.
