Tar Heel senior playmaker Brandon Tate will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, UNC announced Monday.

Tate injured his knee when he was tackled on a punt return in the first quarter of UNC's 29-24 win over Notre Dame. Mike Anello's tackle, a head-on collision with Tate's right knee, tore the ACL and MCL in Tate's knee.

Tate led the ACC, and ranked third in the NCAA, in all-purpose yardage (163.7 yards per game) heading into Saturday's game. He had 376 receiving yards, 305 kickoff return yards, 158 punt return yards, 143 rushing yards and five total touchdowns.
