CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) β€” Michael Carter ran for three touchdowns and Sam Howell threw two touchdown passes as North Carolina beat Western Carolina 49-9 in its home finale.

Howell completed 20 of 23 first-half passes as the Tar Heels rang up a 42-3 lead by halftime. It was a strong bounce-back performance following a loss a week earlier to undefeated Notre Dame.

Western Carolina wrapped up an abbreviated fall schedule with an 0-3 record, though it scored first-quarter points for the first time this season.
