Five questions to ponder before kickoff

For the already-crowned Coastal Division champion Tar Heels, there’s the opportunity to make amends for last year’s 35-7 humiliation, a chance to extend their winning streak to 11 games and match a school record for wins in a season. Coach Larry Fedora’s team can also keep alive its longshot hopes for sneaking into the college football playoff. (Wilmington Star News)

Tar Heels Out For Revenge Against the Wolfpack

With the ACC Coastal Division wrapped up–and a spot in the conference title game against Clemson assured—the No. 14 UNC football team has already put together its best season since 1997. It’s not over yet, though, as the Tar Heels close out the year in Raleigh against their most-hated football rivals, NC State–seeking revenge for the 35-7 loss they suffered at the hands of the Wolfpack in Chapel Hill last season.

Preview & Prediction: #14 UNC at NC State

Rivalry games are full of moments which can't be accounted for such as weird turnovers. UNC went three games without committing a miscue before three fumbles last week. Returning to turnover-free football in this game would certainly give the Tar Heels an edge, especially if UNC can add to its season total of 23 takeaways. Predictions: UNC 35, NC State 24.

ACC championship game: It’s steady Clemson, surprising UNC and sold-out stadium

UNC vs. N.C. State Preview

UNC has clinched a spot in the ACC title game and now has one more obstacle before the showdown in Charlotte. The Heels cannot afford to overlook their cross town rivals who will be hungry for the upset. Carolina will need an impressive win over the Wolfpack in order to stay in the College Football Playoff conversation. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels, Wolfpack both throwing out the records...just in different ways

You know the old adage about throwing out the records whenever rivals meet? It’s a concept both the North Carolina and N.C. State football teams are fully embracing as they prepare for Saturday’s annual showdown at Carter-Finley Stadium. Only in different ways. The Coastal Division champion Tar Heels are only too happy to dismiss the results of the past. (Wilmington Star News)

Tar Heels full of motivation for clash with Wolfpack

There’s so much riding on the outcome of games for No. 11 North Carolina that the Tar Heels insist it doesn’t matter who they’re playing these days. It just so happens that it’s a trip to N.C. State that comes at the conclusion of the regular-season football schedule Saturday. So this is no time to be looking ahead to next week’s ACC championship game against No. 1-ranked Clemson.
