Larry Fedora paraphrases Drake in his pre-game speech, wins by three TDs

If you've spent more than eight seconds around young people in the last year, you've undoubtedly had the lyrics of Drake's "Started From the Bottom" tattooed into your subconscious. It doesn't have to try hard to get stuck in your head. 

It's with that backdrop that North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora opened his pre-game address on Saturday. The Tar Heels started the season 1-5, and now they were here... in the Belk Bowl. Only a late field goal and interception against Duke kept North Carolina from putting together a perfect second half of the season, and the Heels continued their fine finishing kick Saturday, jumping out to a 29-3 third-quarter lead en route to whipping Cincinnati, 39-17.
