CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Elijah Hood rushed for two touchdowns and North Carolina forced five turnovers in a 26-13 win over Virginia on Saturday, the Tar Heels’ sixth straight victory.

Hood finished with 101 yards rushing and two 3-yard scoring runs, T.J. Logan added a 16-yard TD and Nick Weiler kicked two field goals for the Tar Heels (6-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They broke a 13-all halftime tie by scoring on their first three possessions of the second half, and pitched their second straight second-half shutout.

Taquan Mizzell rushed for 117 yards and Matt Johns was 17 of 30 for 148 yards with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Hopkins for the Cavaliers (2-5, 1-1).

Johns had one fumble and four interceptions in the second half, and was picked off in the end zone on a fourth-and-goal with under 6 minutes left.
