Video: Jeff Schoettmer's "Pick Six" vs. Liberty

North Carolina junior linebacker Jeff Schoettmer picks off the pass and runs a 19-yard touchdown. It was Schoettmer's first career interception and touchdown. View Video...

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Liberty

The quarterback comparison: Marquise Williams went 19-for-29 for 169 yards and a pair of touchdowns to go with two interceptions, and Mitch Trubisky went 10-for-16 for 66 yards and a score with one interception. Neither QB was especially sharp. "We had too many interceptions, I can tell you that," Fedora said on the THSN." (GoHeels.com)

No. 23 Tar Heels beat Flames 56-29 in opener

Marquise Williams accounted for four touchdowns while Jeff Schoettmer returned an interception for a score during North Carolina's game-turning flurry, helping the No. 23 Tar Heels beat Liberty 56-29 on Saturday night. Schoettmer's 19-yard return came during a run of four touchdowns in fewer than 4 minutes, which jolted the Tar Heels out of a sluggish and mistake-prone performance in the season opener. (ESPN.com)

Get pumped for the Tar Heels' 2014 season-opening game against Liberty with another great video from the UNC Football Video crew: View Video...

What's New at Kenan Stadium in 2014

The opening of Carolina’s 2014 football campaign against Liberty at 6:00 will give fans a chance to see the progress Larry Fedora and his team have made over the past year. The opening home game will also allow fans to experience the new and improved changes that the UNC Athletic Department has brought to the Kenan Stadium game day experience. (GoHeels.com)

ACC Week 1 Previews and Predictions

Quarterback Josh Woodrum is entering his third year as the starter for Liberty, and the Flames have some weapons at receiver and a pretty experienced offensive line. UNC struggled against the run a year ago and was opportunistic against the pass; missing those DBs could be an issue against Liberty. Prediction: North Carolina, 70-20. Seems about right.

Tar Heels might finally shine at night

There’s no Jadeveon Clowney hype machine for North Carolina’s football season opener this year. But that hasn’t diminished the meaning of Saturday night's game for the Tar Heels, and a lot of that has to do with when that game will kickoff. “(Night games are the) best thing to happen to football,” North Carolina sophomore Ryan Switzer said. (Burlington Times-News)

Five questions to ponder before kickoff

Does it really matter who starts at quarterback for UNC? Conventional wisdom says that junior Marquise Williams will take the first snap for the Tar Heels this evening – if for no other reason than he earned the honor by leading the team to four wins in his five starts last season. It’s almost a certainty that both Williams and redshirt freshman Mitch Trubisky will share playing time. (Wilmington Star News)

UNC Women's Soccer Battles #1 UCLA To Scoreless Tie

In a rematch of last year's NCAA quarterfinals, ninth-ranked North Carolina and top-ranked UCLA fought for 110 minutes Friday night at Drake Stadium, but neither team was able to dent the scoreboard as the match ended in a 0-0 tie in collegiate women's soccer action. UNC is now 1-1-1 on the season after playing its second overtime match against a Pac 12 Conference foe. (GoHeels.com)

An interview with UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham

Bubba Cunningham is entering his third full academic year as the athletics director at North Carolina. He recently sat down with News & Observer UNC beat reporter Andrew Carter for an extended interview about the changing landscape of college sports, the NCAA’s decision to reopen its investigation into academic issues at UNC, Roy Williams’ future and other topics. (Charlotte Observer)

Ryan Switzer flipped a switch last season — can he do it again?

In the first game after he decided to switch on, Ryan Switzer found the end zone for the first time, and UNC won a game for the first time in five weeks. Switzer went on to tally eight more touchdowns and rack up almost 700 all-purpose yards in the final seven games of the season. He went from averaging 10 yards per punt return to 25, and tied an NCAA single-season record with five returns for a touchdown. (Daily Tar Heel)

Mack Hollins: The Unlucky Kid

Here comes The Unlucky Kid, swallowing another mouthful of misfortune. Mack Hollins often takes the most out-of-the-way route to the football field, his dad thought it uncanny enough to attach “unlucky” to his middle son’s name. “When it came to getting lucky breaks,” Richard Hollins says, chuckling, “Mack always had to toe the rope.” (Daily Tar Heel)

'Shak' Rashad brings flavor to Tar Heels

He’s a college football player, Shakeel Rashad, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound bandit with practice and class and workouts and film. He always has to be at the next place, because wasted time means wasted opportunity to get better. Nickname? “I have a lot of nicknames. There’s St. Shaktrick, Shakinabox, Shakadilly, Shaktastic, Shakapotamus, Shaktus...” (Daily Tar Heel)
