Eric Ebron sets new UNC record with this one-handed catch

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

North Carolina's mammoth tight end has been unstoppable against Miami's coverage, and now he's just showing off.

It's rare you see a tight end take over a football game, but North Carolina TE Eric Ebron has done exactly that for the 1-4 Tar Heels, who lead No. 10 Miami 20-13 in the third quarter. Among Ebron's exploits was a 71-yard touchdown catch that opened up UNC's scoring on the day, and his exploits have continued throughout the game.

One key play in North Carolina's last drive, which resulted in a field goal, is this ridiculous, spinning, one-handed catch by Ebron:


That was Ebron's seventh catch on the day and it gave him 167 yards receiving, a new North Carolina tight end record. And with the way Miami's been covering Ebron ("lackadaisically" would be a charitable description), Ebron's probably going to keep adding to that record throughout the rest of the game.
