CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Gio Bernard scored twice, Bryn Renner threw three touchdown passes and North Carolina set a school scoring record in a 66-0 win against Idaho on Saturday.
Freshman Quinshad Davis had two TD catches for the Tar Heels (3-2), who had five different players reach the end zone in the first half. The Tar Heels had 371 yards and 45 points by halftime before finishing with 575 total yards and setting a single-game scoring record despite playing in a steady downpour nearly all afternoon.
The game was so one-sided that Bernard had just two carries while Renner played one snap after halftime.

There were few positives for the Vandals (0-5), who had 110 yards by halftime and finished with 189.
