Preview & Prediction: #17 UNC vs Miami

The key to this game is the same as it was the previous two contests against Pitt and Duke. Get off to a fast start, punch Miami in the mouth which quick scoring drives and keep it rolling in case the defense gets a little porous. If the Tar Heels can do that again on Saturday, the words "Coastal Division Champions" might be uttered soon after. Prediction: UNC 42 Miami 28 (Tar Heel Blog)

By the end of the week it was 13, but Kaaya claimed he didn’t pay attention to the betting lines. (Palm Beach Post)

Countdown to Kickoff: UNC vs. Miami

No. 17 North Carolina can potentially wrap up its first-ever ACC Coastal Division title with a win over Miami on Senior Day.

UNC vs. Miami Preview

The Hurricanes posses talent but have not always played to their potential this season. However, quarterback Brad Kaaya is back and healthy from a concussion he suffered few weeks ago. The sophomore is the key to the pass-heavy Miami offense. Saturday's game could be decided by the matchup of Kaaya vs UNC's improved secondary. (Carolina Blue)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-Miami

On the season Miami has allowed fewer than 400 yards just twice, vs Florida Atlantic and Virginia Tech.

However if there is a place where the Miami defense gives you pause it's the turnover forced. The Hurricanes have 18 takeaways on the season, 12 via interception. (Tar Heel Blog)
