The Duke Blue Devils upset the North Carolina Tar Heels 28 to 27 in the rival game Thursday night.

Duke's Daniel Jones ran for two scores and threw for another to help Duke upset No. 15 North Carolina.

The redshirt freshman gave the defense fits all night with his mobility for the Blue Devils, running for 94 yards as part of a ground game that kept moving the chains against the Tar Heels.
