Following another North Carolina win, national college football analysts, media outlets, and former players all weighed in. The praise is at another level for the Tar Heels who haven't lost since September 3rd. (Carolina Blue)

How UNC Can Make The College Football Playoff

Didn’t think we’d be saying this after the South Carolina game, but here we are: there’s one week left until bowl selection time, and UNC still has a shot at the College Football Playoff. Carolina currently sits at no. 11 in both the AP and coaches’ polls – I’m writing this on Saturday night – but they’ll be in the top 10 when the new polls come out. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC's Historic Season by the Numbers

UNC's 11 game win streak is the longest in school history The 2015 team joins 1972, 1980 and 1997 as the only Tar Heel teams to win 11 games in a season.

Big-game hunters: Tar Heels race past rival Wolfpack, set course on next goal

UNC’s seniors will meet with their coaches today to reset the team’s goals, because Saturday’s 45-34 victory at NC State wrapped up the 11th-ranked Tar Heels’ 2-for-2 mark on season goals that were set in January. A momentum-gathering journey came to its apex with five touchdowns before Saturday’s game was 15 minutes old at Carter-Finley Stadium. (Burlington Times News)

Whipped at the start, Wolfpack can't come all the way back

The message from NC State coach Dave Doeren was the same as from a year earlier against North Carolina. The situation was flipped. “I kept telling them to keep playing the next play,” Doeren said. “Don’t look at the scoreboard. Last year, when we were up, I told them the same thing.” This time, a large deficit was too much to overcome in a 45-34 loss to the No. 11 Tar Heels. (Burlington Times News)

UNC in different State of mind after finishing special regular season in style

“It was 35-7 at the end of the first,” said UNC linebacker Jeff Schoettmer, who wrote the score down after last year’s game and has kept it on his nightstand ever since. “That’s a good metaphor for how we wanted to come out and make a statement to them. They were talking crap to us before the game and we wanted to make a statement that we’re not the same team we were last year.” (Wilmington Star News)

Turner's Take: Got Your Back

They've said it all season: 'Got your back.' The 2015 North Carolina Tar Heels have adopted that mantra, and it has carried them for the last 11 games, since the season-opening loss at South Carolina. From Kenan Stadium to Atlanta, from Pittsburgh to Blacksburg to Raleigh. Next weekend, it comes full circle. (GoHeels.com)

Win streak, perfect ACC record tees up Tar Heels' second chance to impress

An 11-game win streak later, North Carolina is undefeated in the ACC and in the ACC title game for the first time since its inception, with a chance to win its first ACC title since 1980. They locked that up last week with an overtime win at Virginia Tech, but this streak of winning has meant that they at least have a chance of getting into the elusive College Football Playoff top 4.

First quarter mountain too tough for Pack to climb

Dave Doeren regularly tells his team, “Don’t look at the mountain, just climb.” From the very first drive of NC State’s 45-34 loss to No. 11 North Carolina, his team had to heed that mantra. The Wolfpack (7-5, 3-5 ACC) gave up touchdowns on each of UNC’s (11-1, 8-0 ACC) first two drives to face a 14-0 hill to start its second possession. (WRAL Sports Fan)
