CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. --
T.J. Yates threw for three touchdowns and North Carolina won for the first time since 1981 at Scott Stadium, beating Virginia 44-10 Saturday night. The Tar Heels (4-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) had lost 14 consecutive games on the Cavaliers' home field but dominated throughout this one. Yates hit Dwight Jones with a short slant on the first play and Jones went 81 yards for a touchdown after breaking one tackle.
Jones had a huge day, catching six passes for 188 yards and two scores in the first half. He missed a third TD when he stepped out at the half-yard line on a 54-yard reception and finished with seven catches for 198 yards. He arrived with 12 for just 104 yards this year.
Marc Verica struggled mightily for Virginia (2-4, 0-3), throwing three interceptions. Kevin Reddick returned the third one 22 yards for a touchdown and Verica was pulled.
