Opponents Running into a Wall

Through the first five games of the season, UNC ranked 16th nationally and third in the ACC in run defense (95.6). After suffocating Virginia Tech’s ground game, the Tar Heels now rank 11th nationally in run defense (86.3). Louisville (183 yards on 43 carries) and East Carolina (109 yards on 33 carries) are the only two opponents to rush for over 100 yards. The other four teams were held to 80 rushing yards or less.
