Video: 2014 UNC Football - Game One

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. (WRAL Sports Fan)

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)

UNC Football: A Bridge To The Future

Of the 56 different Tar Heels listed on the offensive and defensive depth chart released last Monday, 14 are freshmen, 18 sophomores, and 17 are juniors. Maybe only one of those juniors is a threat to leave early for the NFL, and that's unlikely. One senior, tight end Jack Tabb, starts on offense. And there's quality depth where there are seniors on defense. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Tar Heels Revive Fall Tradition At Children's Hospital

A day before opening the 2014 season, the UNC football team kicked off another hallmark of the fall: Friday visits to North Carolina Children's Hospital. UNC student-athletes spend time at N.C. Children's Hospital year-round, but the visits by football players on Fridays before home games has become a tradition. Carolina hosts Liberty Saturday at Kenan Stadium. (GoHeels.com)

Seniors Lead UNC To 3-1 Win Over Cal

Goals from senior forwards Tyler Engel, Andy Craven and Rob Lovejoy gave No. 6 North Carolina a 3-1 victory over No. 7 California in the 2014 season opener for both clubs Friday night from Fetzer Field. Carolina (1-0) controlled play at the onset of the game and that ultimately paid dividends when Engel finished from 15 yards in the 19th minute off a feed from Craven. (GoHeels.com)

Keeping all eyes on Liberty in wake of incident

Fortunately for UNC, the suspensions come against a considerably weaker FCS opponent, Liberty. The Flames finished 8-4 last season behind standout seasons from quarterback Josh Woodrum and running back Desmond Rice. But Rice won’t be on the field Saturday after a knee injury suffered in the spring will keep him out of the entire season. Still, Woodrum isn’t to be taken lightly. (Carolina Blue)

Countdown to Kickoff: Liberty

No. 23 North Carolina opens the 2014 season against Liberty at Kenan Stadium on Saturday (6pm/ESPN3). The Tar Heels are favored by 26 points over the Flames, a FCS program that returns 14 starters from a 2013 team that closed an 8-4 record with five straight wins. UNC represents the first ranked FBS opponent Liberty has faced in school history. (Inside Carolina)
