Tar Heels Return to Hooville

The “South’s Oldest Rivalry” has not been to very kind to the University of Virginia in recent years. The Cavaliers have dropped their last four in a row to the Tar Heels, with three of those games coming by 24 points or more. As for 2014, this is a team and fan base that has ridden a roller coaster to a 4-3 (2-1 ACC) record. Virginia has lost three one-score games to UCLA, BYU and most recently Duke last Saturday. (Inside Carolina)

ACC Upset Watch: Week 9

North Carolina (3-4, 1-2) at Virginia (4-3, 2-1), noon, ESPN3. Line: Virginia by 7. We saw Virginia in a nutshell last week in a loss to Duke. If its defense cannot create pressure or turnovers, the offense cannot win games on its own. So how the defense handles suddenly unstoppable Marquise Williams is going to be the biggest key in this game. (ESPN.com)

ACC Announces Future Notre Dame Dates

The ACC and Notre Dame have announced their football playing dates through the 2025 season, formally sealing the partnership that began this season and will feature an average of five games per year between ACC teams and the Fighting Irish over a 12-year span. UNC will take on Notre Dame three times between 2017 and 2022, with the next meeting coming on Oct. 7, 2017 in Chapel Hill. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels In The NFL – Week Seven

Julius Peppers has fit in nicely with the Green Bay Packers, and the team is red hot, having won four games in a row. On Sunday, the Packers dominated the Carolina Panthers 38-17, and Peppers had a nice game. The former Tar Heel was in on five tackles and also had 1.5 sacks. Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron missed Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with a hamstring injury. (GoHeels.com)

Blake Anderson: Larry Fedora prepared me to be a head coach early on

Blake Anderson's first head-coaching job came at Arkansas State, a program that was led by Hugh Freeze and Gus Malzahn within the past three years. That’s good company, and it came thanks to preparation by Larry Fedora. Anderson joined The Tim Brando Show on Tuesday and said it was Fedora who prepared him for being a head coach long before Anderson was even considering it. (CoachingSearch.com)

Mack Hollins: Attention Grabber

Mack Hollins has a way, it seems, of getting people’s attention. Perhaps many casual Carolina fans hadn’t heard of him—even though he was the special teams captain last season—until he caught a 33-yard touchdown in the season opening win against Liberty and followed that up with a 91-yard touchdown in the comeback win against San Diego State. (Inside Carolina)

Opponent Preview: Virginia

The Cavaliers will be looking to rebound against UNC at home this week while also try to stay near the top of the ACC Coastal Division. Virginia is a solid team, and they defend their home field well, having only lost one game at home all year, to UCLA in week one. The strength of Virginia is their defense, which allows only 331 yards per game, the 25th best mark in the country. (Tar Heel Blog)

‘O.K. is never Okay': Larry Fedora Wants More from Tar Heels

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora says tasting success last weekend should motivate his 3-4 Tar Heels to want to experience more of it. And that’s a good thing for the Carolina skipper who knows there’s plenty to work on in all three phases of the game. Despite a four-game losing streak, UNC’s 48-43 win over Georgia Tech puts the Tar Heels right back into the ACC Coastal conversation. (Chapelboro.com)

Carolina Rundown: October 21

It's sounding like James Michael McAdoo has a very real chance of making the Warriors. Raymond Felton is making some progress from his ankle injury. John Henson had a double-double (11/10) last night, and Kendall Marshall added six points and five rebounds. P.J. Hairston had 11. Julius Peppers is being credited as the missing piece in Green Bay. (GoHeels.com)

Cavs' trouble with touchdowns could be issue against UNC

Discussion of Virginia’s red-zone difficulties Saturday may be obscuring an even bigger issue. The Cavaliers (4-3, 2-1) have scored one touchdown in the past six quarters. That’s not a good omen as Virginia prepares to entertain a North Carolina team that has failed to score more than 30 points only once in seven games. (Lynchburg News & Advance)

Turner's Take: Monday Musings

Perhaps lost in the headlines with Marquise Williams and Ryan Switzer being named ACC Offensive Player and Receiver of the Week, respectively, is the improved play of the Tar Heel offensive line. The young group looked lost at times early in the season but has begun to put things together and allow plays to develop. “Those guys are unbelievable,” Williams said. (GoHeels.com)

Virginia Hosts UNC, Cavs Tied Atop ACC Coastal

Virginia hosts North Carolina at Scott Stadium for homecoming this Saturday. The Cavaliers are coming off a 20-13 loss at Duke, but still remain tied for first place in the ACC Coastal Division with Duke and Pitt. The Tar Heels are coming off a 48-43 win over Georgia Tech, in a game where UNC quarterback Marquise Williams passed for close to 400-yards and four touchdowns. (NBC 29)

Virginia meets defenseless North Carolina in swing game

The highest-scoring game in Scott Stadium's 84-year history was Virginia's 63-47 victory over Tulane in 1968. Might that benchmark be threatened Saturday when the Cavaliers face North Carolina? Virginia's defensive excellence this season screams "no." In seven games, the Cavaliers have allowed more than 28 points only once, in a 41-33 setback at Brigham Young. (Daily Press)

The Magic of Marquise

Marquise Williams has accumulated 898 yards of total offense in the past two games, also a school record, and is one of six players in the country who leads his team in passing (1,776 yards) and rushing (448 yards). He is second in the ACC in total offense (317.7) behind Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. (Durham Herald-Sun)
