CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Cedric Peerman scored from two yards
in overtime to give Virginia a 16-13 win over No. 18 North Carolina
on Saturday, continuing the Tar Heels' struggles in Charlottesville.
Virginia (4-3, 2-1, Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 10-3 with
2:18 to play, but Peerman scored on a two-yard run with 47 seconds
left in regulation and Robert Randolph's conversion was barely good
to send the game into overtime.
Casey Barth kicked a 28-yard field goal to begin OT, and North
Carolina (5-2, 1-2) led 13-10.
Tight end John Phillips caught a 19-yard pass from Marc Verica
to put the ball on the Tar Heels' four. Peerman ran for two yards
and then two more for the winning score.
