UNC puts 4-game winning streak on line against Wake Forest

No ACC team moves the football as well as North Carolina. That presents an entirely different problem for Wake Forest. The Tar Heels — and the league's best offense — will try to start conference play 2-0 for the first time in 18 years on Saturday when they play host to the Demon Deacons. The Tar Heels (4-1, 1-0) lead the league with averages of 38.6 points and 471 total yards. (Associated Press)

Ethan Albright finds himself on the opposite side of his family's high school and college loyalties

Ethan Albright is football royalty at Grimsley. He was a standout there in the late 1980s before earning a scholarship to Carolina, where he would become a first-team All-ACC tackle. And then Albright would play for 16 years in the NFL, gaining notoriety as a long snapper on special teams, probably the greatest long snapper in NFL history. He’s on the ballot this year for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. (Greensboro News & Record)

Spurrier and the North Carolina Job? We’ll Never Know

The 2004 season began poorly for UNC in Bunting’s fourth year as coach-at one point the Tar Heels were 3-4 and appeared headed for a third straight losing season. Key people in Chapel Hill began to put out feelers for a new coach. I am told Spurrier was interested. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Preview: Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

Quarterback Marquise Williams is not a gifted passer, but can be a terror if he gets in the open field. He is completing 63.1% of his passes on the year, but he is averaging a whopping 7.86 yards/carry. He's actually averaging more yards per carry than yards per passing attempt. Against Georgia Tech, he completed just 54% of his passes, but ran for 148 yards on just 15 attempts. (Blogger So Dear)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-Wake Forest

Statistically, this will be a strength-on-strength battle when UNC is on offense facing the Demon Deacon defense. Wake Forest is ranked 15th in yards per game allowed and 36th in yards per play allowed. The best defense UNC has seen to date is Illinois which is 32nd and 28th respectively. The Demon Deacons have held teams to fewer than four yards per rushing attempt and 6.6 yards per pass attempt. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC vs Wake Forest: Preview and Prediction

Wake Forest played Florida State tough and they have a pretty formidable defense of their own. But North Carolina is averaging 38.6 points per game and their defense has improved mightily under Gene Chizik. The final score will be respectable, but this will be a very comfortable North Carolina win. Prediction: North Carolina 31, Wake Forest 17 (Athlon Sports)

UNC Injury Report: Wake Forest

Call this the injury to the insult of the two suspended cornerbacks. UNC has three defensive linemen in the injury report. True freshman Aaron Crawford is out for the season, Nazair Jones will miss the game with a leg injury and Tyler Powell is doubtful.

On Saturday against Wake Forest Dalton is expected to get his first live games reps on the defensive line. (Carolina Blue)
