CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina receiver Brandon Tate is out for the season with a knee injury, ending his college career and leaving the No. 18 Tar Heels without a big-play threat and kick returner.
Tate injured his right knee in the first quarter of the 29-24 win against Notre Dame on Saturday and did not return. Tate underwent an MRI on Sunday night that confirmed an earlier diagnosis of torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments.
Tate had scored five touchdowns this season and was leading the Atlantic Coast Conference with 163.7 all-purpose yards per game. He had 376 yards receiving, 143 yards rushing, 305 kickoff return yards and 158 punt return yards.
The senior finishes his career as the NCAA's all-time leader with 3,523 combined kick return yards.
