ACC Upset Watch Week 5: Will Georgia Tech get back on track?

Last year’s game was a scoring free-for-all, with the Tar Heels pulling out the win at the last minute. Georgia Tech has won eight straight over North Carolina in Atlanta, but the Jackets are having major issues running the ball. In their last two losses. If there is any good news for Georgia Tech, it’s the fact that North Carolina allowed 279 yards rushing to FCS Delaware last week. (

Numbers Game Along UNC's Offensive Line

North Carolina's offensive line depth became a legitimate concern when top reserve guard Jared Cohen left the team for personal reasons and veteran interior lineman Will Dancy suffered a season-ending injury. A lower leg injury has sidelined Bentley Spain since the second week of the season, cutting UNC’s playing roster down to bare numbers. (Inside Carolina)

Injury picture better for Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech defensive end Rod Rook-Chungong is among multiple Yellow Jackets players injured in the past two games who appear on track to play in Saturday’s game against North Carolina. Rook-Chungong, a starter, suffered a shoulder injury against Notre Dame and sat out the loss to Duke, but has returned to practice. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

UNC Spreading The Wealth At Wide Receiver

UNC Wide Receivers Coach Gunter Brewer preaches balance amongst his group of wideouts. "Whoever it may be any given day, if they take one away then the other guy has to step up and do his part," says Brewer. The corps calls themselves the "Freaks" and they are living up to their name. A different player has led the team in receiving yards in each of the first four games. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas Crowley feels at home at North Carolina

Lucas Crowley knew there was something special about UNC the moment he walked onto campus. By the time he left, he already had committed to playing football for the Tar Heels. Now a junior, Crowley never has regretted his decision. “When I was getting recruited here, everybody welcomed me with open arms,” he said. “Other schools, some of the people acted like they didn’t have time for me.” (St. Augustine Record)

Rainy day blows over for Marquise Williams

Everyone has rainy days. Marquise Williams is no different. The normally sunny dispositioned quarterback did not play during the second half of Saturday’s rain-soaked 41-14 win against Delaware, as Coach Larry Fedora benched him for backup Mitch Trubisky. “As a senior, just some things you have to fix and clean up,” Williams said. “(Fedora) expects more out of me and I gave him more today.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Triangle teams in early position to make ACC title run

No Triangle team has won an ACC football championship since 1989 when Duke forged a tie for the title with Virginia. North Carolina has not finished atop the ACC standings since the days of Lawrence Taylor in 1980. NC State’s last ACC football title came in 1979. And yet all three schools appear to have a real chance to win the league; not just a theoretical chance. A real chance. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Fedora Live: Penalties Trending Positive for UNC

North Carolina played some of the cleanest football in the nation during its nonconference slate. The Tar Heels are currently tied for 21st in the country in fewest penalties, drawing just 19 flags for 151 yards through four games. UNC head coach Larry Fedora believes that is no coincidence. “I think we’ve got a fairly mature football team,” Fedora said Tuesday night. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Is Business As Usual At Quarterback

Last Saturday's game seemed to take last season's dual-quarterback system to a new level. Starting quarterback Marquise Williams was pulled from the Delaware game before halftime, and he didn't return. Although Mitch Trubisky took his place, Williams stressed that it doesn't impact their relationship. "There's no hard feelings," Williams said. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels Preparing for Road Noise

North Carolina will travel to Georgia Tech for its first road game of the season on Saturday. The Tar Heels prepared for the elevated noise levels of Bobby Dodd Stadium by implementing their silent count against Delaware last weekend. “We changed our whole cadence with the quarterback in the game, so everything was silent count,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said on Monday. (Inside Carolina)

A Meaningless Streak

There was a prevailing message emanating from the Kenan Football Center on Monday afternoon, and it had to do with the Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech: That O-fer streak everyone keeps talking about doesn't mean anything. In other words, UNC hasn't won at Georgia Tech since 1997, a span of eight games, but the message from the Tar Heels is none of that matters. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Ken Huff Named To 2015 ACC Legends Class

Former North Carolina All-America guard Ken Huff is among 14 standouts named to the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Class of Football Legends announced Tuesday by the league office. Huff will be honored at the ACC Night of Legends presented by the Belk Bowl on Friday, Dec. 4, and during the on-field pregame festivities at the 11th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship. (

Schoettmer: "We have to be disciplined"

North Carolina heads to Atlanta for a Saturday matchup against the 2-2 Yellow Jackets, who are coming off losses to Notre Dame and Duke. UNC linebacker Jeff Schoettmer spoke with the media on Monday to break down how the Tar Heels are preparing for Georgia Tech's triple option, an in-depth look at his role, and the defensive mentality going into the crucial Coastal Division matchup. (Carolina Blue)

UNC-Georgia Tech Preview: Jackets Eyeing Bounce Back

The Yellow Jackets (2-2) enter Saturday’s game on a two-game losing streak after dropping their last two contests to No. 6 Notre Dame and Duke. Georgia Tech was the preseason favorite to win the Coastal Division for a second straight year, but injuries and attrition at running back and defensive setbacks have caused the team to falter out of the gate.
