Peyton Manning Spoke To UNC Quarterback Marquise Williams To Reassure Him After Poor Week 1 Performance

The week one game against South Carolina did not go quite as UNC quarterback Marquise Williams had hopes. Williams was effective in driving the Tar Heels down the field, completing 19 of 31 passes for 232 yards, but three costly interceptions, all in South Carolina territory and two in the end zone, sealed UNC's fate. After the 17-13 loss, Williams spoke to one of the world's best quarterbacks, Denver Broncos star Peyton Manning, and has come away from the conversation with a bit of renewed confidence.

Williams has been a solid quarterback for most of three seasons now, and the schedule gets lighter over the next few weeks, before the Heels travel to Atlanta to face ACC Coastal favorite Georgia Tech on October 3. Williams will have ample opportunity to bounce back this weekend, when UNC hosts North Carolina A&T.
