A Little Historical Perspective

So UNC won last night 44-12, a thirty-two point margin of victory.

If you didn't happen to catch the game, you may want to go reread that last sentence. UNC won by thirty-two points. I understand if you need a minute to process this. I'm here to help.

The last time UNC won by 32: November 11, 2001, when the Heels beat Duke 52-17.

The last time UNC won by 32 not against Duke, because really, now: October 20th, 2001, over Clemson, 38-3. They also beat FSU 41-9 earlier that year. Bunting was good, once.

Teams that have beaten UNC by 30+ points in that time, and their final rank:
