UNC received the ball first, and it did not take long to get points, with Drake Maye leading the Tar Heels down the field in 3:13 for a touchdown. The star quarterback completed four out of five passes for 65 yards, including a 46-yard pass to transfer wide receiver Nate McCollum.
McCollum was targeted all five times, making an insane grab with the defender all over his back, dragging the Gopher in the end-zone with him.

Seeing the Maye and McCollum connection early into the game is excellent. UNC struggled in the passing attack, so the early touchdown was refreshing. It will be interesting to see if the QB/WR duo can keep it up.
