 North Carolina Tar Heels vs Miami Hurricanes

CFB POW 4-2 67%

North Carolina and Miami face off in an ACC battle on Saturday. Miami is coming off a heartbreaking 20-19 loss to arch-rival Florida State resulting in Miami’s first loss of the season in a game they led most of the way and their ability to bounce back with a vast amount of focus and intensity as they take on North Carolina is definitely something that is a concern heading into this game. North Carolina lost 34-3 against Virginia Tech last week and their offense didn’t work but a large part of that was the brutal conditions they played in due to Hurricane Matthew which stopped them as much as anything Virginia Tech did defensively against them. 

I expect a much greater performance from the Tar Heels offense this week led by QB Mitch Trubisky who has put up terrific numbers with 76% completions and a stellar 13-2 TD-INT ratio and it is worth noting that both INT’s came in those brutal weather conditions they played in last week. Miami’s defense hasn’t been tested by many great offenses yet this season but I think they will struggle to get stops in this game against this potent North Carolina attack especially if they are still in hangover mode from last week’s loss to FSU. Miami lost at home to Florida State but North Carolina beat them on the road 37-35 the week prior to that yet the oddsmakers are trying to say North Carolina is a full TD underdog here to Miami. I don’t agree with that and for my college football pick I expect the Tar Heels to challenge to win this game outright and at worst keep this game within a single score.
