Carter blocked a punt, returned an interception 55 yards and had seven tackles in Carolina's 17-13 win at Rutgers.

With Rutgers driving in Carolina territory, Carter made a leaping grab of Tom Savage's second-quarter pass and returned it to the Rutgers 28-yard line.

Carolina went on to score a touchdown and cut the lead to 10-7.

In the fourth quarter, with Carolina holding a 14-13 lead, Carter blocked a punt, his seventh career blocked kick, and the Tar Heels took over at the Rutgers 35. Carolina kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive.

Carter also added a 4-yard tackle for loss.
