CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina's offense had a new look during its first spring game under Larry Fedora.

The Tar Heels ran the no-huddle scheme that Fedora brought with him from Southern Mississippi during Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage. The new coaching staff has spent much of the 15 spring practices focused on teaching the players they've inherited how to work at the up-tempo pace, which will be the foundation of everything Fedora's team does when it returns for preseason camp this summer.

The Blue team had the most success with the offense in the spring game behind top quarterback Bryn Renner and redshirt freshman tailback Romar Morris. Renner twice connected with Morris for touchdowns, while Morris also ran for an 8-yard score in a three-TD first half.
