GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference recognized six top performers from last weekend in its Football Players of the Week list announced Monday, which included UNC senior linebacker Bruce Carter.

DEFENSIVE BACK OF THE WEEK – Bruce Carter, North Carolina, LB, Sr., 6-3, 235, Havelock, N.C. (Havelock)

Carter blocked a punt, returned an interception 55 yards and had seven tackles in Carolina’s 17-13 win at Rutgers. With Rutgers driving in Carolina territory, Carter made a leaping grab of Tom Savage’s second-quarter pass and returned it to the Rutgers 28-yard line. Carolina went on to score a touchdown and cut the lead to 10-7. In the fourth quarter, with Carolina holding a 14-13 lead, Carter blocked a punt, his sixth career blocked kick, and the Tar Heels took over at the Rutgers 35. Carolina kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive. Carter also added a 4-yard tackle for loss.
