North Carolina receiver Ryan Switzer notched the first passing yards of his career with a 59-yard pass to Quinshad Davis early in the second quarter.
Switzer took the lateral from quarterback Bryn Renner before launching it down the right side to a streaking Davis. The N.C. State secondary was fooled on the initial pass, which allowed Davis to get open.
The play gave the Tar Heels a 21-16 lead at halftime.
