Georgia preparing for UNC’s ‘fast-ball’ attack

The play ends and Georgia’s defense huddles quickly. They break and run to the new line of scrimmage as quick as they can.

It’s all designed to ensure Georgia can quickly recover and defend a potent offense that’s known to score points in bunch. (Columbus Ledger-Enquirer)

The long-awaited game day is almost here, and it turns out the players are not the only ones who get nervous stepping out into the Saturday spotlight.

Larry Fedora Wednesday Post-Practice Quotes

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora on players being antsy for game: "I mean that's been this whole week.

The truth behind Georgia's No. 1 ranked pass defense

The North Carolina Tar Heels travel to Atlanta to take on defensive powerhouse Georgia in the Chick-fil-A kickoff game this weekend. Georgia gave up the fewest passing yards per game in the NCAA last season, and while that stat is impressive, a deeper look shows Georgia's pass defense was simply good, not great. (Carolina Blue)

UNC Defensive End Mikey Bart's Homecoming

In some ways, the matchup between No. 18 North Carolina and No. 22 Georgia in the Georgia Dome on Saturday will be a home game for starting senior defensive end Mikey Bart. Bart attended Buford (Ga.) High School, which is located about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta. Even though it’s a homecoming of sorts, Bart may not be on the receiving end of too many cheers. (Inside Carolina)

The impact of UNC’s Mack Hollins missing the first half against Georgia

Fedora and Chizik preparing for scheme not ghosts

If Georgia rolls out freshman quarterback Jacob Eason on Saturday, UNC will be going against a player who has never taken a live college snap. Georgia could play two quarterbacks.
