UNC WRs: 'We feel like we can execute against anybody'

UNC will rely on QB Mitch Trubisky's poise in battle against Florida State

The Seminoles have won 22 consecutive home games and feature one of the most hostile environments in college football for opponents. But the thought of playing in front of 79,560 tomahawk-chopping Seminole fans doesn’t faze Mitch Trubisky. “I don’t know,’’ he said this week. “I know their fan base is passionate and all that. I’m more worried about us.’’ (Fayetteville Observer)

Position by Position: UNC offense vs. FSU defense

FSU’s defensive line is banged up and could be without DE Josh Sweat (knee) and DT Derrick Nnadi (ankle). But some players are quickly making progress, notably defensive end Brian Burns (four sacks in 2016) and defensive tackle Fredrick Jones (three tackles, TFL vs. USF). Even if Sweat is out and Nnadi is limited, this is a physical, athletic front four. (Carolina Blue)

Friendly Feedback
Being on the west coast, my Tar Heel coverage is actually not bad from the main stream media for major events. However, Tar Heel Times is my go to website for all things UNC. I stop by several times a day. Also, I like the new ABC sports section. Nice addition. Go Heels!!!
