Watch: Josh Adams Breaks Free for a 73 Yard Touchdown

The feature back for the Irish offense comes up big with another long run.

Now it’s 14-0 Irish. Quinton Nelson and Mike McGlinchy did what they do best, and Josh Adams turned on the speed shortly after the Cam Smith touchdown.

The touchdown run represents Adams’ fifth carry of 60 or more yards. Adams is dealing with seasonal allergies (as do I on a regular basis, which makes me a division one athlete) and two bad ankles. Impressive endurance from the running back.

The rain has started to fall in Chapel Hill, so the ground game becomes that much more important. Adams is splitting carries with Tony Jones Jr and CJ Holmes. Credit to Barstool Irish (@BarstoolIrish) for capturing the highlight.
