FCS Opponents Place Premium on 7 Wins for UNC

North Carolina’s 2015 football schedule includes two FCS opponents, which could potentially bring recently updated NCAA bowl eligibility requirements into play if the Tar Heels finish the regular season with a 6-6 record for the third consecutive season.

Analyzing UNC's 2015 Football Schedule

UNC's farthest road game is at Pittsburgh followed by Atlanta, then Blacksburg. UNC won't leave the state of North Carolina until October 3rd and play every game within a 500 miles radius of Chapel Hill. Unlike the past two seasons, there is just one bye week in 2015. Unfortunately for UNC is comes after the Heels play Georgia Tech instead of before which is ideal when facing the triple-option. (Tar Heel Blog)

Lucas: Rapid Schedule Reactions

The opener against South Carolina is big for all kinds of reasons—a marquee matchup against an SEC opponent, a likely national television appearance, and a chance to make a dent in a series the Gamecocks have controlled lately.

Why the Wake-UNC non-conference series should start a trend (please)

There's no bigger component of college football tradition than a classic rivalry game, which is why when ancient ACC rivals North Carolina and Wake Forest announced Monday they would face each other in a pair of non-conference games outside the ACC schedule in 2019 and 2021, college football fans reacted with universal applause and acclamation. (CBS Sports)

UNC Football Facelift

Larry Fedora’s makeover of Carolina football continues this month after a lackluster 6-7 2014 season. Last Monday, the program officially announced the arrival of Gene Chizik as defensive coordinator. Chizik brings a championship pedigree to Chapel Hill.

Position that needs improvement: North Carolina

Every team has issues to address this offseason, and this week, we're taking a look at the most glaring holes for each ACC team and figuring out where they might find answers between now and the season opener.

UNC-Wake agreement might not start a trend but at least puts spotlight on ACC's scheduling problem

Yesterday, Wake Forest and North Carolina, two original ACC members, took an unprecedented step of scheduling a pair of games against each other that will be non-conference contests.

Remembering Mack Brown ahead of National Signing Day

Early in the first half at the Dean Smith Center, the University of North Carolina welcomed Mack Brown back to Chapel Hill, showing him in the crowd on the video board while announcer Tony Gilliam recognized the former coach on the public address system. The ovation that followed was warm. Quite warm. If some fans still harbored any bitterness toward Brown, it was not discernible. (WRAL Sports Fan)

My Carolina Experience: Jason Brown

Former UNC football player Jason Brown’s life has been far from ordinary. He has faced challenges head on and conquered them. Now, he's a man on a mission to help the less fortunate. It all started when he was looking for a school in the early 2000s. “I was looking for the place that had it all – not just athletics but a great combination of academics and social life. Carolina had the best combination of all three." (GoHeels.com)

UNC, Wake Forest deserve credit for schedule choice

It is about time ACC teams got creative with their schedules. Because it is an absolute crying shame that two of the oldest rivals in the league are forced to go years between games.
