Wright Named ACC Specialist Of The Week

Chapel Hill, N.C. -- North Carolina kickoff returner Wallace Wright has been named the ACC's Specialist of the Week for his performance against Boston College.

Wright returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown in the Tar Heels' 16-14 win over then-No. 19 Boston College on Saturday, giving the Tar Heels two opening kickoff returns for scores in the same season for the first time in school history.

Wright, a senior from Fayetteville, N.C., initially bobbled the ball, but then picked it up at the 10 and raced around the right side for the score.
