UNC-Wake Forest Preview: Deacons Strong on Defense

Wake Forest has shown signs of improvement over a season ago. Head coach Dave Clawson’s team hung around with a ranked Florida State for four quarters, but the Demon Deacons have mustered just 36 combined points in conference play. This is an unbalanced team that pairs a strong defense with a struggling offense. (Inside Carolina)

Looking Ahead: Wake Forest

The Demon Deacons come into Saturday’s game with a 3-3 record overall and 1-2 in ACC play. In the last three Wake Forest football games, the average margin of victory has been a mere six points. The Demon Deacons have found ways to keep themselves in close games all year long, with the exception of a 41-3 blowout win in the season opener against Elon. (GoHeels.com)

Duke and North Carolina are favored to play for an ACC championship. You'll probably read that a lot over the next month -- as the college basketball season nears.

The two teams meet in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Nov. 7. (ESPN.com)

Tight end Brandon Fritts is establishing himself as yet another tool in North Carolina’s skill position box. The Mentor, Ohio freshman from has found the end zone twice this season, making him yet another threat in a receiving corps that boasts depth and talent.

Tar Heel offense prepares for toughest test of season

After scoring 38 points against Georgia Tech in UNC’s biggest win of the season so far, the Tar Heel offense will face its stiffest test yet this week against Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons have bedeviled opposing offenses this season, ranking 15th in the country in total defense through six weeks. They allow fewer than 300 total yards per game, including fewer than 150 through the air. (Daily Tar Heel)

Fedora Live: DT Jalen Dalton Likely to Play

Freshman defensive lineman Jalen Dalton could possibly make his North Carolina debut against Wake Forest on Saturday, according to UNC head coach Larry Fedora. “There’s a good chance Jalen Dalton will play this week,” Fedora said during his weekly radio show. Dalton, hailing from Clemmons, N.C., was considered the prized recruit in UNC’s 2015 recruiting class. (Inside Carolina)

Gio Bernard keys Bengals' run-game versatility

Actually, they rank third in the NFL in rushing attempts per game. For that, they can thank Giovani Bernard. He's carried 69 times for 377 yards. That's 5.5 yards per rush. His rushes up the middle with the Seattle defense spread against three wide receivers and Tyler Eifert on the field served a major role in the 17-point comeback Sunday against Seattle. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

Tar Heels In The NFL - Week Five

Giovani Bernard is quickly becoming the first down back in Cincinnati, out-producing the initial first-option Jeremy Hill. The former Tar Heel ran for 80 yards on 15 carries and caught five passes for 21 yards, while Hill earned 13 yards on eight carries. Bernard’s versatility to run and catch out of the backfield is increasing the Bengals' productivity significantly. (GoHeels.com)

Leadership and chemistry a recipe for success for UNC football

North Carolina is on a four-game winning streak following the their 38-31 win over Georgia Tech on Oct. 3rd. With Wake Forest this Saturday in Kenan Stadium and Virginia the following week also at home, UNC could be 6-1 heading into a tough Thursday night primetime battle against the 4-1 Pittsburgh Panthers. Pitt is coming off two straight wins over Costal Division rivals Virginia Tech and Virginia. There is optimism surrounding the UNC program. (Carolina Blue)

Larry Fedora: Focus on the Present

UNC head coach Larry Fedora is making a point to his roster that the past is irrelevant to this year’s team. “I’m trying to distance everything from the past and just take the mistakes and learn from them,” Fedora told reporters at his weekly press conference on Monday. “And make sure that this team understands who they are.” UNC is 1-0 in the ACC for just the third time this millennium.
