WATCH: North Carolina player sends Cal punt returner flipping after huge hit
The Cal Golden Bears took a big 17-0 lead over North Carolina at halftime of their season opener in Berkeley, but had to hold on for a narrow 24-17 victory.
Still, the game featured plenty of highlights, including one from the Tar Heels on a punt just before the intermission.
As you can see in the video below, the Cal punt returner gets flipped by a huge hit from the North Carolina player:

Fortunately, the Cal player was OK, but he was probably a little bit dizzy after getting sent for a spin.
Still, Cal managed to hold on to win the game, so it’ll be all smiles from the Golden Bears when they watch this play on film.
