Maye posted over 300 yards in three of his last four games. The 6-foot-4 quarterback scored his eight rushing touchdown of the season, as he found the end zone twice through the ground. He connected with tight end Bryson Nesbit for a clutch touchdown from 15 yards out during the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The Tar Heels will face Clemson on the road in Saturday’s matchup.
Clemson Tigers Game Notes
Cade Klubnik was 23-for-34 passing for 205 yards, four touchdowns and one interception during Saturday’s 42-21 victory against Georgia Tech. He also had six rushes for 20 yards.
