Alternate title: UNC's backup QB is the ACC Offensive Back of the Week
The weekly awards are out for the ACC and the duo of Mitch Trubisky and Mack Hollins snagged honors at their respective positions.
OFFENSIVE BACK – Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina, So., QB, 6-3, 220, Mentor, Ohio
Trubisky completed 17 of 20 passes for 312 yards and four touchdowns and set a single-game North Carolina record for pass efficiency rating at 282.04 in Saturday's 41-14 win over Delaware. The previous Tar Heel record was 263.48 by Jason Stanicek vs. Maryland in 1993. Trubisky also ran the ball six times for 39 yards. He set single-game career highs for completions, attempts, passing yards and touchdown passes. Trubisky’s 64-yard touchdown pass to Mack Hollins in the third quarter was the longest completion of his career.
RECEIVER – Mack Hollins, North Carolina, Jr., WR, 6-4, 210, Rockville, Md.
Hollins caught three passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday’s 41-14 win over Delaware to earn ACC Receiver of the Week honors for the second time in his career. Hollins now has 10 career touchdown receptions, and Saturday marked his second career two-touchdown game (also 2014 at Virginia). Hollins posted his third career game with 100 or more receiving yards.
We will have much more on Mitch Trubisky and the QB position later with Larry Fedora's Monday press conference and our weekly roundtable.
With all the QB talk, Mack Hollins didn't get nearly the attention he probably deserved. The junior wideout had his first big game of the season with 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Along with Ryan Switzer, Hollins is one of UNC's deep threats though Hollins has the size to really go after the football. Having his as a threat stretches the field and opens up space for some of the shorter throws in Fedora's offense not to mention the running game.
