UNC lost to South Carolina after throwing these identical end zone INTs

They're like twins!

Two field goals or one touchdown, and UNC wins. Instead, Marquise Williams threw uuuuuuuuuugly interceptions right to South Carolina.

UNC's first drive got down to the 6-yard line. On third down, Marquise Williams dropped back, had plenty of time, maybe even enough room to scramble... and instead forced this awful throw directly to South Carolina's Skai Moore.

In the fourth quarter, trailing by four, UNC got down to the 8-yard line. Needing a TD for the win, Larry Fedora opted to go for it on fourth down rather than kicking a field goal. Williams dropped back, had plenty of time, maybe even room to scramble... and instead forced this awful throw directly to South Carolina's Skai Moore.

Here are the two picks right next to each other. They're like identical twins!

UNC never got the ball back after the last interception, losing 17-13. The Tar Heels had 440 yards, but only 13 points, thanks to these plays. Williams had a bad game -- three interceptions and one TD on a tipped pass, and after leading the Tar Heels in rushing last year, he managed only nine yards on 10 carries.

UNC is the first FBS team to 0-1 in the 2015 season.
