WATCH: Elijah Green goes 80 yards for touchdown on UNC’s first play

It didn’t take long for the UNC football program to find the end zone in Saturday’s home game against Georgia Tech.

After the Tar Heels defense forced a punt on the Yellow Jackets first possession, UNC got into the end zone right after. Running back Elijah Green scampered 80 yards for a long touchdown run on the Tar Heels’ very first offensive play of the game.

Green hit the hole then went down the left sideline untouched for the long run as it was a well-designed run-pass option play. Watch as Green hits the hole and gets the crowd on its feet early on in Chapel Hill:

UNC is hoping to extend its win streak and earn another boost in the College Football Playoff rankings.
