North Carolina-Miami: Matchups to Watch

Miami averages 4.94 yards per rush and 8.1 yards per pass attempt, both of which are middle of the road statistics in the ACC. In Miami’s 24-19 win at UNC last October, the Tar Heels held the Hurricanes to 59 rushing yards on 32 carries. Miami is 10-11 overall against North Carolina and therefore have a chance to even the series record in its ACC opener at Hard Rock Stadium. (Inside Carolina)

Is N'Kosi Perry or Malik Rosier starting at QB for No. 16 Miami?

It might be only then that everyone — the Tar Heels included — will learn which of the Hurricanes’ quarterbacks will get the start. (South Florida Sun Sentinel)

Chansky’s Notebook: Broadened Perspective

Flooding and football were partners on Saturday. In Chapel Hill, a nice crowd turned out for the postponed home opener, and the Tar Heels looked like they had benefited from the cancellation of one game and the time away it afforded. Larry Fedora called it a reset, and UNC played a surprisingly consistent and steady game considering how poorly its season started. (Chapelboro.com)

Dazz Newsome Flourishes in Featured Role

Modest and not one to use a lot of words, North Carolina wide receiver Dazz Newsome entered the interview room Saturday, sat down, and took questions from a hoard of reporters. By the way he carried himself, you would have no idea that the generously listed 5-foot-11 sophomore just had the best game of his UNC career to help lead the Tar Heels to a 38-35 victory. (Inside Carolina)

9. North Carolina: Where you rank UNC in the preseason is going to depend on how good you think their freshmen — Coby White and Nassir Little — are going to be and what kind of development you expect out of Brandon Huffman, Sterling Manley and Garrison Brooks.

Antonio Williams Back Where He Belongs

North Carolina began recruiting Antonio Williams in eighth grade. He verbally committed to the Tar Heels as a high school sophomore. But when the New London, North Carolina, native's football aspirations ultimately led him to Ohio State, it seemed as if he'd never find himself in the position he was in Saturday. Yet there he stood, behind Nathan Elliott in the pistol formation. (GoHeels.com)

Group of Suspended UNC Players Returning vs. Miami

The North Carolina Tar Heels will be getting a handful of key players back that will boost the talent and depth of the roster that they can now field.

Author, UNC grad tackles one of the greatest baseball teams you’ve never heard of

When Anne Keene, the Austin author of “The Cloudbuster Nine: The Untold Story of Ted Williams and the Baseball Team that Helped Win World War II,” was growing up, she knew that her father both loved and hated the game of baseball. She knew he adored it, loved the old players, told stories about them to the point that it became something of a family joke. (Austin American-Statesman)

Extra Points: Pitt Stop

The heat. The tragedy-induced layoff. The first-half hiccup. The Nathan Elliott of Pitt games of yore. Over and over Saturday in Kenan Stadium, stories and scripts from yesterday kept coming full circle in the Tar Heels' 38-35 victory. Saturday happened to be the 39th anniversary of No. 13-ranked Pitt with coach Jackie Sherrill and defensive end Hugh Green coming to Chapel Hill. (GoHeels.com)

Antonio Williams leads strong running back trio in UNC's 38-35 win over Pittsburgh

Minutes before the North Carolina football team ran out of the tunnel and onto the field at Kenan Stadium to play for the first time this season, Antonio Williams was deep in his own head.
