In one of the best rivalries in sports, North Carolina Tar Heels wide receiver Dazz Newsome delivered one of the most explosive touchdown runs fans will see on Saturday.
Midway through the second quarter with North Carolina trailing by a touchdown against Duke, Newsome took the handoff, found the edge and then slipped out of an ankle tackle — the rest was history.
No defender would come close to catching up to the electric wide receiver on his sprint to the end zone for an 84-yard touchdown.
Dazz Newsome is GONE!!!!!!!!!!

While Newsome hasn’t had the ball in his hands a lot this season, he is a big-play machine whenever he gets the football.
Plays like this show why the Tar Heels would be wise to get the exciting sophomore into open space with the ball in his hands more going forward.
