The North Carolina Tar Heels are set to kick off their ACC conference schedule against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this weekend in what should be an offensive showdown. Last season these two teams scored over 100 combined points and had over 1000 combined yards on offense.
Georgia Tech is the favorite, especially playing on their home turf, so the Tar Heels have some mighty odds to overcome but with veteran leadership it’s definitely not out of the question.
The Tar Heels have had a bye week and it comes with good timing as the defensive looks to fix its issues for a tough match-up against a triple option offense that Georgia Tech runs.
