The ACC Nation Morning Edition
Chad Flack should be carried through the streets of Chapel Hill. The North Carolina sophomore hit not one, but two go-ahead homers to put the Tar Heels in the College World Series. Flack hit one homer in the eighth to put Carolina up 5-4 and then, with the Heels trailing Alabama again in the bottom of the ninth, Flack hit a dramatic two-out shot for the win.

In Sacramento, Calif., Florida State captured the men's track and field title Saturday. Garrett Johnson won the shot put championship to help the Seminoles in their quest. A pair of Tar Heels also won individual championships Saturday.
