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)

Feeling a Brees: How Mitch Trubisky’s intangibles are changing Bears

When you trade up to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 pick, you do so with the hope of forever changing your team for the better. In that regard, Bears general manager Ryan Pace sees Mitch Trubisky as his new version of Drew Brees. It’s the only standard to hold Trubisky to - Pace’s starting point for quarterbacks. Pace and Brees were together nine years in New Orleans. (Chicago Sun-Times)

UNC Football Hosts No. 8 Miami Saturday

UNC looks to snap a five-game losing streak when the Tar Heels host No. 8 Miami Saturday at noon at Kenan Stadium. The final ACC home game of 2017, Saturday also marks Homecoming at UNC. UNC fell to 1-7 on the year with a 59-7 loss at No. 14 Virginia Tech last weekend in Blacksburg. Miami picked up its sixth straight win with a 27-19 victory over Syracuse last Saturday. (

Notes, numbers and what to watch for as No. 8 Miami travels to North Carolina

After three straight thrillers and a pair of wins at home, the Hurricanes will travel to Chapel Hill this weekend where they’ll face a struggling North Carolina team beset with injuries. The Tar Heels, who have beaten Miami in two straight matchups, have lost 17 players to season-ending injuries and will also be without leading rusher Michael Carter this weekend.

Roy Williams Offers Support to UNC Football, Larry Fedora

While the North Carolina football team suffers through a historically bad season, one of its biggest fans is extending his support - both publicly and privately. That fan happens to be the head coach of the defending national champion Tar Heel basketball team. Roy Williams is admittedly a huge college and UNC football fan, attending many Tar Heel games in the fall. (Inside Carolina)

Even the punter shares in Tar Heels’ misery

Going into UNC’s game Saturday at Virginia Tech, a Tom Sheldon punt had never been returned more than 17 yards (last year’s opponents managed two yards combined), and the Australian had never had a punt blocked. In a difficult season, the Tar Heel punting unit has been the one consistent bright spot, regularly flipping the field and putting the defense in good position. (Wilson Times)

Carolina Insider Podcast: Miami Preview, Basketball Exhibition

Hosts Jones Angell and Adam Lucas get Tar Heel fans ready for a full weekend of North Carolina sports with home basketball on Friday and home football on Saturday afternoon. (

Countdown to Kickoff: UNC vs. Miami

Miami is the highest-ranked team to play in Chapel Hill since No. 7 South Carolina defeated UNC, 21-15, in 2007. Mark Richt’s squad is 6-0 and has been efficient on both sides of the ball despite squeaking out recent victories. Miami’s last three games have been won by a combined 13 points. Even so, the Hurricanes are 20.5-point favorites over the injury-riddled Tar Heels (Inside Carolina)
