Video: Top 5 ACC Football Performances From 2015 Season

The 2016 season is coming up fast so the ACC Digital Network brings you the top 5 single-game performances of the 2015 ACC Football season. Witness the domination that was the 2015 UNC Tar Heels' offense and relive some of the magic from Florida State standouts.

Who will be the ACC's 1,000-yard receivers in 2016?

4. Mack Hollins, North Carolina. If UNC is to build off last year’s Coastal division title, Hollins will likely take the next step after seasons with 745 (2015) and 613 (2014) receiving yards. He is now the go-to threat, too, after the departure of Quinshad Davis. 5. Ryan Switzer, North Carolina.

Bengals extend running back Giovani Bernard for $15.5M

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday afternoon that they reached a deal with running back Giovani Bernard to extend his contract through the 2019 season. The Enquirer has confirmed from a league source that the deal is worth $15.5 million, and Bernard's salary will rise from just over $1 million in base earnings this season to around $6 million.

Video: Fedora's Freakshow Trailer No. 4

Gear up for Fedora's Freakshow, UNC's annual elite invitation-only football camp coming later this summer, with this motivational trailer of classic UNC football highlights courtesy of the UNC Football Video Office.

Pigskin Preview Set For July 18

UNC football coach Larry Fedora, who led the Tar Heels to an 11-win season, a berth in the ACC Championship Game and a perfect 7-0 record at Kenan Stadium last year, will help kickoff the 2016 season at the 14th annual Pigskin Preview on July 18. The event will be held at the Embassy Suites in Cary. Registration starts at 11 am and the program begins at 11:30 am.

Larry Fedora goes in-depth on satellite camps

On Tuesday, CarolinaBlue spoke with UNC head coach Larry Fedora on the topic of satellite camps, a hot topic in college football. A satellite camp is a prospect camp held far from a school's campus that is usually hosted by another school in a recruiting hotbed. UNC will not participate in any satellite camps this summer, a conscious decision by Fedora.

Who will be ACC's 1,000-yard rushers in 2016?

3. Elijah Hood, North Carolina: Hood finished with 1,463 yards last season and averaged 6.7 yards per carry -- second in the league behind Cook. With one of the strongest offensive lines in the ACC returning, Hood should be a shoo-in for a second consecutive 1,000-yard season.

ACC Coastal win totals: Can UNC bring stability to the top of the division?

North Carolina has the highest predicted win total, according to Vegas Insider, and Virginia has the lowest but the rest of the ACC's Coastal Division is separated by just 1.5 games. Making any predictions about this division is a fool's game, but I love the chaos too much not to try and predict the unpredictable. UNC, 8.5

Los Angeles Rams Sign DL Cam Thomas

The Los Angeles Rams continued a busy offseason on their defensive line Monday by adding veteran Cam Thomas to the mix. The defensive tackle previously visited with the Seahawks this offseason. The Rams also signed former Tar Heel defensive end Quinton Coples as a bookend to Robert Quinn, giving the Rams three Tar Heels on their defensive line.

Video: Fedora's Freakshow Trailer No. 3

UNC's summer high school football camp season begins today in Chapel Hill, leading up to Larry Fedora's invitation-only "Freak Show" camp later this summer. Get pumped with some classic, freakish UNC football highlights from the UNC Football Video Office.

Rams hope Quinton Coples feels more at home in their scheme

Quinton Coples is 6-foot-6 and 280 pounds and was the 16th pick in the 2012 draft by the New York Jets. If you were to pick out the 11 most-football-looking guys in Rams gear, Coples would probably be one. Yet Coples hasn’t consistently done the things that won so much scout approval when he was at UNC, playing with Rams’ defensive end Robert Quinn.

Rams DE Robert Quinn aiming to get back to pass-rush dominance

Los Angeles Rams defensive end Robert Quinn has become something of a forgotten man, lost in equal parts because of the back injury that cost him half of last season and the emergence of teammate Aaron Donald. As Quinn continues to rehabilitate from back surgery, he's not exactly keeping detailed notes on those who have forgotten what he can do.

Where Are they Now: NFL wide receivers and running backs

The UNC football program has produced plenty of NFL superstars, including nine time pro bowler Julius Peppers and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Lawrence Taylor. Today, more than 30 Tar Heels play in the National Football League. Let's take a look at the wide receivers and running backs on that list in this edition of Where Are they Now.

Who will be the ACC's 3,000-yard passers in 2016?

Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina. Trubisky has an opportunity to better what Marquise Williams did through the air for a few reasons. Though this is his first year as a starter, he is a veteran in the system. He can launch the ball. And he has a deep group of receivers and running backs returning, along with a strong offensive line.

Athlon's ACC Football 2016 Predictions

North Carolina is the pick in the Coastal, with Miami, Virginia Tech and Pitt up next in the second tier. Georgia Tech’s regression to 3-9 last season was a huge surprise, but the Yellow Jackets should rebound back into a bowl game this fall. Duke has made major strides and should challenge for a fifth consecutive trip to the postseason.
