KENAN MEMORIAL STADIUM/CHAPEL HILL -- It was Chapel Hill's first ever Thursday night football game, a part of UNC head coach Butch Davis' plan to advance Tar Heel Football. The Heels started off with a strong  30 minutes, but couldn't produce a "W" in the last 30 minutes and lost 30-27 to the Florida State Seminoles.
