UNC football player turns himself in sexual assault case

A North Carolina football player turned himself in on an arrest warrant Wednesday morning for sexual battery and assault on a female student in February.

Why wins against FCS teams shouldn't always be regarded lightly

Thirty-four FCS teams would currently be favored over the worst FBS team (UL Monroe) on a neutral field, according to ESPN’s FPI projections. Beating North Dakota State or James Madison (whom North Carolina faces this week) or any other FCS top 25 team should not be considered a black mark on a team’s résumé. (ESPN.com)

UNC Football Film Review: Win vs. Illinois

The quarterback draw was such a key component to the North Carolina offense while Marquise Williams was at the helm, so it was good to see the offensive play-calling staff look to go back to it last weekend with Mitch Trubisky. I’d expect that we’ll see more of this from the offense moving forward given its success versus Illinois. (Tar Heel Blog)

Video: Mitch Trubisky's Steady Improvement

Opponent Preview: UNC vs. James Madison

James Madison is the first of two FCS opponents that UNC will face in 2016. The Dukes hired head coach Mike Houston, formerly the head coach at the Citadel, before the season’s start and his tenure in Harrisonburg, VA is off to a hot start. James Madison beat Morehead State, 80-7, in its season opener and took down Central Connecticut State 56-21 last week. (Inside Carolina)

ACC pulls football title game, other championships from North Carolina due to HB2

The ACC followed musicians, the NBA and the NCAA on Wednesday, when the league announced that it would pull its football championship out of North Carolina due to the state's controversial House Bill 2. The ACC will move every championship event that isn't played on a college campus with football being the most high-profile and most impactful. (Syracuse.com)

Larry Fedora Live: Tomon Fox Playing Big Early

Freshman defensive end Tomon Fox wasn’t supposed to see as much playing time as he has. He wasn’t supposed to produce at as high a level as he is, either, but he continues to surpass expectations. Fox, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 235 pounds, played more than 20 snaps against Georgia and saw more than double that amount against Illinois. (Inside Carolina)

The road gets tougher for James Madison football

The Dukes will need to be more consistent as they face tougher foes in upcoming weeks. JMU takes on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Saturday followed by the beginning of conference play. UNC, a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent, was ranked No. 22 in the Preseason Associated Press poll. (The Breeze)

Tar Heel Take: A Man Who Can Do Both

A college quarterback who can throw and run is better for an offense and everyone else involved, except the opposing defensive coordinator. And just like a spork, Mitch Trubisky can do two things. Against Illinois, Trubisky tucked it and ran nine times. He ended two of those runs in the end zone and racked up 42 yards on the ground. (Carolina Blue)

Position Comparison: UNC Offense v. JMU Defense

James Madison Front 7: Last weekend against Morehead State, the Dukes only allowed 57 yards rushing and racked up an impressive three interceptions. Although Morehead State’s offense is not on the same caliber as North Carolina’s, the Dukes' drastic improvement since the 2015 season cannot be ignored. (Carolina Blue)

What to know from UNC football's weekly press conference

It's a trap: UNC opened its season with two games away from home, losing to No. 16 Georgia in Atlanta before beating Illinois at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois. The Tar Heels will face James Madison on Saturday in their home opener, as UNC looks to build upon its seven-game winning streak in Chapel Hill. But the Dukes aren't to be dismissed.

UNC's Defensive Adjustments Coming Easy

Larry Fedora told reporters on Monday that he believed defensive end Tyler Powell and right guard Tommy Hatton would return to practice on Tuesday after being absent last week and not traveling to Illinois. Hatton was not at practice, although Powell was back practicing with the twos. “We’re going to look and see basically how it unfolds during the week,” Chizik said. (Inside Carolina)
