ACC Preview - FSU and Miami reign supreme

John Bunting has done a fabulous job bringing UNC back to respectability. Two new quarterbacks (redshirt freshman Cam Sexton and former Nebraska QB Joe Dailey) will vie to replace Matt Baker, but the biggest story in Chapel Hill is the improved defense. North Carolina allowed only 26 ppg last year, down six points from the season before. And if the 69 points the Tar Heels allowed vs. Louisville is removed, the "D" gave up just 22 points per contest. North Carolina had the toughest schedule in the country last year and still managed to win five games. Six or seven may be the number this season. (Sports Network)
