North Carolina freshman WR Ryan Switzer tied an NCAA record by returning his fifth punt for a touchdown this season in Saturday's 39-17 Belk Bowl victory over Cincinnati.
The 18-year-old, who didn't even begin training camp as the Tar Heels' primary punt returner, returned a third quarter punt 86 yards for a touchdown to tie the record and extend UNC's lead to 29-3. The Tar Heels began the season 1-5 but won six of seven down the stretch to finish with a winning record (7-6). "We're standing here today because of our coaching staff and our senior leadership," said the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Switzer, the game's MVP. "Those two groups, they didn't let us hang our heads. They didn't let one person walk into the building who wasn't willing to work. We knew we had the talent the ability to turn the season around. We had to have the heart to do it."
