Matt Baker’s backup still unknown

The Tar Heels’ backup quarterback situation looks as tenuous as ever heading into Saturday’s season opener against No. 17 Georgia Tech. As of Tuesday, UNC coach John Bunting had not decided whether redshirt freshman Joey Bozich or walk-on sophomore Ben Johnson will back up Baker in Atlanta. Neither player has played a snap in college — the two players likely would have battled for third-string duties had Roger Heinz not undergone season-ending back surgery Aug. 24. (Daily Tar Heel)
