Complete coverage of North Carolina Football.

Jalen Dalton expected to play Saturday

Jalen Dalton arrived at UNC in January as the Tar Heels' top rated recruit in the 2015 class. The then 6-foot-6, 235-pound defensive end was ranked as the No. 3 weak-side defensive end in the nation and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of North Carolina. On Saturday against Wake Forest Dalton is expected to get his first live games reps on the defensive line. (Carolina Blue)

Uniforms set for Wake Forest

The rumors that UNC would be wearing black for their Saturday night game against Wake Forest seem to be put to bed....for now. Larry Fedora refuted the idea that the Heels would be wearing their all-black uniforms on his Tuesday radio show, citing that the Demon Deacons use black as one of their main colors. (Carolina Blue)

UNC vs Wake Forest: Six Storylines

Two longtime ACC foes meet on Saturday as Wake Forest travels to Chapel Hill to face North Carolina. Both teams have momentum and are coming off wins. UNC has won four straight heading into Saturday’s game while Wake Forest, sitting at 3-3, comes off a win against Boston College and a close battle with Florida State. We looked at six key storylines for Saturday’s game. (Carolina Blue)

Marquise Williams and UNC find strength through adversity

Marquise Williams rebounded from the loss to South Carolina, accounting for 10 touchdowns in his last four games with just one interception. The Tar Heels bounced back, too. They’ve won four straight, including a dramatic come-from-behind win over Georgia Tech two weeks ago. Suddenly the team that looked dead on arrival -- and the QB responsible for those early struggles -- had new life. (ESPN.com)

Turner's Take: The 2015 Football Team

Head coach Larry Fedora is concerned with the North Carolina football team that is 4-1 in 2015, not any previous team, and not any streak, skid or supposed curse. Reminded two weeks ago that UNC had not defeated Georgia Tech in Atlanta since 1997, Fedora responded, “The 2015 team hasn’t ever lost in Atlanta, and they haven’t lost in Chapel Hill."

UNC-Wake Forest Gameday Reminders

The University of North Carolina will continue its 2015 home football schedule on Saturday at 7 p.m. against Wake Forest. As Tar Heel fans plan their visit to Kenan Stadium for the game, here are friendly reminders to help make your trip to campus as pleasant and easy as possible. (GoHeels.com)

Pace: How's Tricks?

The Tar Heels under coach Larry Fedora have been enterprising and aggressive with onside kicks, fake field goals and running two-point conversions when the opposition doesn’t spread out to cover the PAT team across the field. Non-quarterbacks through three and a half seasons under Fedora are an amazing 10-for-10 passing. (GoHeels.com)

Fedora, Chizik Wednesday Post-Practice Quotes

Larry Fedora on in-state opponents: "This is an important game for us. We have that goal of being state champions. Our guy know that and they understand that. Hopefully this team is mature enough and the leaders are doing what needs to be done to make sure we take care of our business. If you want to recruit the state you need to win the state." (Carolina Blue)

Opponent Preview: Wake Forest

The Demon Deacons are in the midst of a slight quarterback controversy. The established starter, sophomore John Wolford, has been inconsistent this year and was pulled for two and a half games in favor of freshman Kendall Hinton. Neither player has been particularly impressive so far this year as Wolford regained the starting job for the Boston College win. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Players to Watch

Marquise Williams, Senior QB Williams is a true dual threat QB who can make big plays with both his arm and his legs. Last year, he set 18 different records at UNC. This year, he is 70-111 (63.1%) passing for 845 yards and 6 TDs. He has thrown 4 interceptions, but 3 of them came in UNC's first game of the season, a loss to South Carolina. (Blogger So Dear)

UNC Football Seeking Best ACC Start Since 1997

When the North Carolina football team rallied from 21 points down for the largest comeback win in school history two weeks ago against Georgia Tech, it was also the first time the Tar Heels had won in Atlanta since 1997. This week at home against Wake Forest, 1997 will still be on the minds of the Tar Heels—but for a different reason. (Chapelboro.com)

Wolford vs. Hinton: Quarterback controversy in Wake's future

Wake Forest’s first six games have shown, if nothing else, that the Deacons are headed toward a quarterback controversy. Coach Dave Clawson said he’s looking forward to it. Clawson doesn’t necessarily relish the idea of his fan base splitting into camps, one backing sophomore John Wolford for the starting job and others lining up behind freshman Kendall Hinton. (Winston-Salem Journal)

State Championship in Play for UNC

It’s been a decade since North Carolina last won the coveted state championship by defeating ACC rivals N.C. State, Duke and Wake Forest in the same season. In order to claim the state title for just the second time in 15 years, UNC must first hold serve against Wake Forest under the lights at Kenan Stadium on Saturday. (Inside Carolina)

UNC preparing for high effort, blitzing Deacon D

The one thing that stood out from Larry Fedora's Monday press conference is that the UNC head coach reiterated that the Wake Forest defense likes to blitz. It's a good defense that plays hard and won't quit. In talking with Tar Heel assistant coaches and players after Tuesday's practice, the same general sentiment was expressed. (Carolina Blue)
