RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan ran for touchdowns in a dominating first quarter as No. 11 North Carolina beat North Carolina State 45-34 on Saturday.

Logan scored on runs of 42 and 40 yards, while Hood had a 39-yard run of his own before scoring from a yard out in that 35-point avalanche for the Tar Heels (11-1, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 14 CFP).

UNC also got TD catches from Quinshad Davis and Mack Hollins, tying the program’s single-quarter scoring record by rolling to a 35-7 lead. That was too big of a hole for the Wolfpack (7-5, 3-5), who managed to slow the Tar Heels’ early onslaught but never recovered.

Hood finished with a career-high 220 yards rushing and two touchdowns to lead UNC, which had already wrapped up the Coastal Division title and a trip to next week’s ACC championship game to play No. 1 Clemson.
