Video: Get To Know Des Lawrence & M.J. Stewart

Defensive backs Desmond Lawrence and M.J. Stewart are well on their way to bringing acclaim back to the 'Rude Boy' nickname the group prides itself on through standout, physical play under new defensive coaches Gene Chizik and Charlton Warren. View Video...

UNC's punt return unit in good hands with record-holder Ryan Switzer

Of course there was no way the 21-yard punt return average Ryan Switzer accumulated his freshman season at North Carolina could be sustained throughout the rest of his career. Right? Well, three games into his junior season, Switzer has once again announced himself as college football’s premier punt returner. On eight returns this season, Switzer is averaging 22.88 yards.

Tar Heels look to establish ground game against Blue Hens

In its past three games, the North Carolina football team (2-1) has rushed for more than 200 yards per game — much more than its average of 161.3 yards over its first three games of the 2014 season. Delaware faces only its fourth ever ACC opponent on Saturday and has gotten off to a shaky start, especially after a late-game loss to Villanova this past Saturday. (Daily Tar Heel)

Delaware Gives UNC Final Chance to Improve Before ACC Play

This week the Tar Heels conclude their three-game home stand at Kenan Stadium against the Delaware Blue Hens. They’re looking to stay sharp in their last game before ACC play begins–while also trying to start 3-1 for the first time since 2011. The Blue Hens have a record of 1-2, and are the second team from the Football Championship Subdivision that UNC has played this season. (Chapelboro.com)

Eric Ebron improving after rookie struggles

Eric Ebron’s rookie year was a struggle — 25 catches for 248 yards and one touchdown in 13 games. But in two games this year, he has nine receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns. “He’s caught the ball pretty well and made some plays for us,” coach Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. “His arrow of improvement is heading in the right direction.” (Detroit News)

UNC vs Delaware: Six Team Storylines

The Tar Heels welcome the Fightin' Blue Hens to Chapel Hill to play their third consecutive home game before traveling to Georgia Tech next week. Coach Fedora has made it a point of emphasis this week that his players aren't overlooking Delaware as an FCS team. That said, we looked at six important storylines heading into Saturday's game. (Carolina Blue)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-Delaware

Delaware has played three FCS teams thus far and these are the numbers. Yes, the defense looks decent but it was against three FCS teams. The offense is downright putrid and that also came against three FCS teams. In other words the defense might not be as good as the numbers indicate and the offense might actually be worse. (Tar Heel Blog)

Could October Be a Breakthrough Month for UNC?

For the first time in the Larry Fedora era, North Carolina holds a winning record after the first three games of the season, and the Tar Heels will likely pick up another victory when they face FCS opponent Delaware on Saturday. Assuming UNC gets the win over the Fightin’ Blue Hens, the team will wrap up September with a 3-1 mark and will have three non-conference wins for the first time since 2012. (Today's U)

Ryan Switzer forges bond with 3-year-old survivor of brain surgery (video)

UNC receiver Ryan Switzer gives friend Mollie Jean Wade, a 3-year-old who underwent brain surgery last March, and her family a tour of the North Carolina Tar Heels' athletic facilities. (FOX Sports)

UNC uniforms set for Delaware

North Carolina is holding a "white-out" for Saturday's matchup against Delaware. In accordance with that theme, the UNC football team is going with all white uniforms for the 12:30 game. White pants, white jersey, and white helmet. Of course the uniforms will have the normal Carolina blue accents and the new argyle addition. (Carolina Blue)

Fundraiser Saturday for Quincy Monk

A “One Team One Dream” Fundraiser will be held Saturday to assist Tar Heel Quincy Monk (1998-2001) in his battle with cancer. Quincy was diagnosed with aggressive adenocarcinoma this summer and has made good progress in his recovery. He has been released from Duke Cancer Center and wife Lisa reports his “levels are fantastic” and his doctor is “thrilled.” (UNC Lettermen)

Now retired, Woody Durham could remain anonymous — until he opens his mouth

Woody Durham could remain anonymous — until he opened his mouth. Inevitably, someone would recognize his voice. “It happened enough that I kind of got used to it,” he says. For 40 years, Durham was the radio play-by-play man for the Tar Heels, calling nearly every football and basketball game until his retirement in 2011. “People still come up to me and say, ‘Woody, I miss that voice.’” (Our State Magazine)

UNC-Delaware Preview: Blue Hens Running

The Blue Hens enter their first-ever matchup with UNC looking to avoid a third loss in four games after losing a heartbreaker to FCS No. 6 Villanova. Delaware is coached by former North Carolina assistant coach Dave Brock, who was part of John Bunting’s staff in 2005 and 2006. Brock took over Delaware in 2013 and has built a 14-13 overall record. (Inside Carolina)

Turner's Take: Super Tuesdays

A quote from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, “Every battle is one or lost before it is ever fought,” adorned Tar Heel football workout shirts four years ago. Though perhaps an oversimplification, the statement’s central message, that preparation is the key to victory, rings true. For the Tar Heel football team, that means practicing with purpose during the week to win the battle on Saturday. (GoHeels.com)

Delaware ‘fired up’ for North Carolina

Saturday’s 12:30 p.m. game with North Carolina at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill may not be particularly advantageous for a developing team. Of the 50 Blue Hens who saw action in last Saturday’s 28-21 loss at Villanova, 32 were freshmen and sophomores, including 13 starters. Yet, because it’s their chance to play a major-conference foe in a big-time setting, players relish the opportunity. (Delaware News Journal)
