The NCAA has granted additional eligibility for a North Carolina player who missed most of the 2016 season amid charges of sexual battery and assault on a female student.

North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham on the NCAA's academic investigation: "We didn't win [by avoiding sanctions]. It wasn't good for us, it wasn't good for the industry, it wasn't a good experience for our students. ... We know we've made a lot of mistakes as an institution. We know our students primarily got great classes while at Carolina. But we worked with every accrediting agency and we followed their process. We're committed to being open. Now what we have to do is earn back people's trust."

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said the emotion in the locker room last week after its first win this season over an FBS team was tremendous. "The kids have continued to do the things we asked them to do, bring great attitudes to practice, been full of energy and practiced well. To not make the same mistakes we've been making and get over the hump was rewarding to our players."
