CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 30 (UPI) -- A late field goal by Ross Martin proved to be the game-winner Saturday in 24th-ranked Duke's 27-25 victory over North Carolina.

The win clinched the ACC Coastal Division title for the Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2 ACC), who advance to the conference championship game next week against unbeaten Florida State.

Martin's decisive kick with 2:22 left in the game was followed up by an interception by DeVon Edwards that iced the win in the final seconds.

Anthony Boone completed 23-of-34 passes for 274 yards and connected with James Crowder for two Duke touchdowns. Edwards added to the Blue Devils' tally with a 99-yard kickoff return late in the second half.

Marquise Williams was 17-for-36 for 223 yards for North Carolina (6-6, 4-4). He connected on a TD pass to Quinshad Davis in the third quarter to pull the Tar Heels to within 24-22.
