File these two under " as expected"

Marquise Williams record setting performance was good enough for ACC Offensive Back of the Week honors while Mack Hollins 165 yards receiving and two touchdowns netted him the ACC's honor this week for top receiver.

OFFENSIVE BACK – Marquise Williams, North Carolina, Sr., QB, 6-2, 225, Charlotte, N.C.

Williams set a school record with 524 yards of total offense and accounted for five touchdowns in less than three quarters of game action in North Carolina's 66-31 win over Duke. The 524 yards are the sixth-most in ACC single-game history.  Williams eclipsed his own previous UNC record of 469 total yards, which he set against Old Dominion in 2013.  Williams passed for 494 yards, the most in UNC history, and his 404 yards passing in the first two quarters set another school record for passing yardage in a half. Williams passed for four touchdowns – on plays that covered 89, 74, 49 and 12 yards – and ran for another score. Williams is now responsible for a school-record 83 career touchdowns.  He has 28 rushing scores (a UNC record for a quarterback), 52 touchdown passes and three receiving TDs.

RECEIVER – Mack Hollins, North Carolina, Jr., WR, 6-4, 210, Rockville, Md.

Hollins had five receptions for a career-high 165 yards and one touchdown in North Carolina's 66-31 win over Duke. He averaged 33 yards per reception. Hollins caught a 74-yard touchdown pass from Marquise Williams to give the Tar Heels' a 31-10 lead in the second quarter.

In some respects, Ryan Switzer got hosed a bit. He caught the big pass to open the game and ended up with 107 yards and a touchdown but was overshadowed by Hollins.
