CHAPEL HILL, N.C.  - Romar Morris scored twice to help North Carolina run out to a big lead and beat Middle Tennessee 40-20 on Saturday.

 

Bryn Renner threw for 339 yards and a touchdown for the Tar Heels (1-1), who led all day to regroup after a loss at highly ranked South Carolina. North Carolina scored the first 23 points, had 511 yards and never let the Blue Raiders (1-1) get closer than 13 points after halftime.

 

Jordan Parker ran for a touchdown and Jared Singletary returned a fumble for a score early in the fourth quarter that brought Middle Tennessee to within 26-13. But the Blue Raiders committed four turnovers, had their offense go dormant in the first half and struggled to consistently slow the Tar Heels' no-huddle spread offense.

 

Renner found Quinshad Davis for an 18-yard touchdown shortly after Singletary's return to retake momentum, helping UNC win its third straight home opener.
