Tar Heels a trendy pick, but No. 1 Clemson still has something to prove

North Carolina is hotter than Derek Zoolander right now, but Clemson didn’t get to No. 1 in the country by accident. So let’s get that out of the way. The Tigers are very good, and even though North Carolina is becoming a bit of a trendy upset pick, make no mistake – this will be by far the toughest game the Tar Heels have played to date, and it’s going to take a combination of luck and great execution to get the win and get the first ACC championship for North Carolina since 1980.

Pregame Pep Talk: Film don’t lie, so watch out for the Tar Heels

All in all, if we were doing a traditional Post and Courier head to head, I would give Clemson a slight nod at quarterback and UNC a slight nod at running back.
