Two of the biggest games remaining on North Carolina’s football schedule finally have a kick off time. The outcome of the coastal division relies on the outcomes of both North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech and North Carolina vs. Miami.
While they may be just one game on the schedule for all three schools, the results could cost one of the three teams the chance to play for the ACC Championship. Even without a division championship on the line, both games highlight not only two highly contested ACC match-ups, but highlight two big games on the schedule nationally.
The Tar Heels will kick off against the Hokies on October 5 at 12:30 p.m. in Blacksburg, Virginia. Last season the Tar Heels ended two season losing streak to the Hokies with a 48-34 dismantling of the collapsing Virginia Tech team. This year the Hokies look stronger and the Tar Heels are still adjusting to having some news faces that replaced old faces after this year’s draft. This year’s game is building up to be an exciting one!
Just a few weeks after that it will be primetime football when the Hurricanes come to Chapel Hill. Last year’s game was a thriller in Miami, but this time the Canes have to come up North. The kickoff off will be at 7:45 p.m. on ESPN for Thursday Night Football. Kenan is expected to be a packed house and the city of Chapel Hill will be closing the streets for a huge pre-game party before hand. Looks to be like another game for the highlight reel!
