Recap & Analysis: UNC 48 Georgia Tech 43

The defense wasn't any better but forcing just one turnover and two punts was enough for the offense to put up 48 points and give the Tar Heels their first ACC win of the season. UNC breaks a four game losing streak and a five game skid against the Yellow Jackets. This game unfolded the only way it could for UNC to win with a defense that struggles to get stops on a consistent basis.

Georgia Tech, North Carolina showcase contrasting offenses

If fans are looking for a game with contrasting styles, they need to look no further than Saturday’s game between Georgia Tech and North Carolina. Simply put, there just aren’t many similarities between the Yellow Jackets and Tar Heels.

Tar Heels desperate for win

The mood around the North Carolina football team isn't too swell right about now. With four straight losses and the possibility of the first five-game losing streak since 2006, that's pretty understandable. The tension is palpable, building under the pressure cooker of Kenan Stadium, as the Tar Heels attempt to go for their first win since week two of the season.

Five questions to ponder before kickoff

Does UNC’s defense have any chance at stopping Georgia Tech’s triple option? UNC needs to play defense with its offense by sustaining drives, controlling the clock and taking advantage of every scoring opportunity. As Duke proved last week in Atlanta, QB Justin Thomas and his high-powered rushing attack can’t hurt you when they’re standing on the sidelines watching.

Tar Heel Downtown returns for UNC-Georgia Tech game

Tar Heel Downtown, a pregame fan experience, is once again coming to Downtown Chapel Hill on Oct. 18, along West Franklin Street near the Plaza at 140 West. The free event — featuring a live outdoor concert, family fun activities and the Marching Tar Heels — will take place at 4 p.m., three hours prior to kickoff between the University of North Carolina and Georgia Tech at Kenan Stadium.

Preview & Prediction: UNC vs Georgia Tech

UNC is going to need some breaks. The Tar Heel defense will need to get off the field by any means necessary whether it be turnovers by Georgia Tech or finding a way to get stops against the triple option. If UNC can do that and continue the offensive roll from last Saturday, there is a chance UNC can't stop the four game losing skid. Prediction: Georgia Tech 38 UNC 28

Georgia Tech defense focused on Marquise Williams

The Georgia Tech defense will be tasked this week with keeping up with North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams, who last week against Notre Dame became only the fourth player in ACC history to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game when he passed for 303 yards and ran for 132.
