After Tar Heels pop Miami, UNC receiver pops question

As the clock ticked down on North Carolina’s win Saturday, on a scale of 1-10, Damien Washington was nervous “in the 10, 11 range,” he said. Not because it was his last game in Kenan Stadium – it was – or because the outcome was in doubt – it wasn’t – but because injured teammate Juval Mollette had an engagement ring in his pocket and it was almost time for Washington to retrieve it.

Postgame Analysis: #23 UNC 59- Miami 21

Carolina is for Real. UNC played this game the same way Clemson played the Hurricanes in their famous 58-0 win that got Al Golden fired. The Heels beat up Miami on both lines of scrimmage, limiting the Canes to 2.7 yards per carry in meaningful action while Carolina averaged 7.7 yards per rush over the first three quarters. The Heels played like the better team and outclassed their opponent. (Tar Heel Blog)

North Carolina routs Miami 59-21 in another statement game

The College Football Playoff committee has largely overlooked North Carolina so far this season, but the Tar Heels seem determined to force the spotlight onto their performance.

Seniors discuss memories, what UNC means

Jeff Schoettmer on his last game in Kenan Stadium: "It's gonna be emotional, but our team has bigger goals for the rest of the season. That's the big thing for me. It is going to be emotional playing our last game in Kenan Stadium in front of our home fans, but I look at it as another step towards our goal of winning the Coastal and ultimately the ACC championship."

Tar Heels hunting for Coastal crown in matchup with Miami

North Carolina will begin its quest to lock up the Coastal Division this weekend when it hosts Miami, but the Tar Heels will need a little help from their rivals – if Duke beats Pittsburgh and the Tar Heels win, the Division is theirs. Duke hasn’t had an easy time beating anyone lately, and the Blue Devils could really use some good feelings after the blowout loss in Chapel Hill last week. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Preview & Prediction: #17 UNC vs Miami

The key to this game is the same as it was the previous two contests against Pitt and Duke. Get off to a fast start, punch Miami in the mouth which quick scoring drives and keep it rolling in case the defense gets a little porous. If the Tar Heels can do that again on Saturday, the words "Coastal Division Champions" might be uttered soon after. Prediction: UNC 42 Miami 28 (Tar Heel Blog)
