Breakout for UNC's Beau Corrales

You don’t know Beau. At least, you didn’t before Saturday. North Carolina’s 24-19 loss to No. 8 Miami in Chapel Hill offered a glimpse into the untapped potential of freshman receiver Beau Corrales. The 6-foot-4 pass catcher, who entered the game with two career receptions, ended Saturday’s affair with 64 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four catches. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Post-Miami Quotes

Larry Fedora: “There’s no doubt in my mind that our guys are playing hard, there’s no quit in them. They’re a tight group, they’re not divisive, they don’t point fingers. They go out there and care about each other, love each other, and play hard. But we’ve still made too many mistakes to overcome to win a football game. Especially against a really good football team.” (Inside Carolina)

No. 8 Miami stays unbeaten, tops North Carolina 24-19

Malik Rosier threw for a career-high 356 yards with three touchdowns to help eighth-ranked Miami hold off North Carolina 24-19 on Saturday. The Tar Heels responded to last week's blowout loss at Virginia Tech with a better showing. Still, UNC's offense struggled in the red zone, and the defense repeated its habit of surrendering a couple huge plays. (Associated Press)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Miami

With Brandon Harris also sidelined with an injury, Nathan Elliott replaced Surratt. Elliott made the most of his opportunity, completing 16-of-39 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 79 yards. Although he tossed three interceptions – one of which came after his receiver slipped on his route – Elliott showed a lot of poise and toughness off the bench. (

UNC Comes Up Short Against No. 8 Miami

With 2:20 to play, North Carolina was 37 yards away from taking the lead over No. 8 Miami and potentially claiming its first win over a top-10 opponent since 2004. Running back Jordon Brown fumbled on the next play, the Hurricanes recovered and then ran out the clock for a 24-19 victory. The Tar Heels were competitive despite 22 players being sidelined due to injury. (Inside Carolina)

Miami Hurricanes vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

It will take a lot of Chapel Hill magic for the Tar Heels to pull off the upset, but it has happened in this series. In Miami’s first season in the ACC in 2004 the Hurricanes entered the game ranked fourth in the nation but North Carolina pulled off the upset, 31-28. However, this Miami team is focused and the one looking for revenge. Prediction: Miami 41, UNC 10 (Athlon Sports)

UNC’s Fedora deserves pass during dismal season

The trainwreck that has become North Carolina’s football season isn’t expected to get any better today. The bruised and battered Tar Heels will likely absorb their eighth loss in nine games at Kenan Stadium against No. 8-ranked and unbeaten Miami, ensuring the 2017 team will have a losing record. That’s unfamiliar territory for head coach Larry Fedora. (Fayetteville Observer)

Thank you, Darian Durant

Although Darian Durant’s uniform has changed, he deserves thanks from everyone in Rider Nation. Durant was unfailingly respectful of the fans, the media, and the franchise’s rich history. At all times, he was an exemplary representative of the team with which he became a star. Considering the larger picture, Darian Durant will always belong to Saskatchewan. (Regina Leader-Post)

Eighth-ranked Hurricanes hoping for all-around effort against struggling North Carolina

The Hurricanes will have the chance to do some things their coach has been asking of them on Saturday when they take on a struggling North Carolina team that has been hit hard by injuries – play consistently, dominate the line of scrimmage and impose its will on an opponent. The Tar Heels have won two in a row against Miami and won the Coastal Division title in 2015. (South Florida Sun-Sentinel)

Why some of UNC football’s offense is having to play through pain

North Carolina graduate transfer center Cam Dillard and senior offensive tackle Bentley Spain are playing through pain. At a recent practice, white athletic tape was around their hands and Dillard’s ankle, remnants of early-season injuries. Spain broke his hand before the start of the season, and Dillard sprained his ankle against Louisville on Sept. 9. (Durham Herald-Sun)
