WATCH: Drake Maye throws touchdown pass for first points of season

·1 min read

UNC football quarterback Drake Maye is making his first start after winning the team’s quarterback battle this offseason.

Maye is hoping to lead North Carolina to a Week 0 win over Florida A&M in a rainy Kenan Memorial Stadium and after a three-and-out on the first drive, Maye started to settle in. The quarterback led the Tar Heels on their first scoring drive of the season, going 78 yards on 7 plays in 2:21 to give the Tar Heels their first points of the year.

Watch as Maye finds tight end Kamari Morales for a 19-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of Saturday’s game:

On the drive, Maye had a 42-yard scramble to setup UNC deep in FAMU territory. A play later, he found Morales for the score.

The game is currently tied at 7 in the first half.
