Miami Game

North Carolina (4-2, 1-1 ACC) at Miami (4-2, 3-0 ACC)

North Carolina comes into this game with an extremely explosive offense, most recently putting up almost half a hundred against Virginia Tech. Giovanni Bernard is going to have a monster game going up against what is probably the worst defense in college football. The Canes had no answer for ND's run game and they'll have massive struggles against Bernard and the explosive Heels. This is a critical game in the Coastal division as these teams will probably finish 1 and 2 in the division, although neither will play in the ACCG (UNC is currently on an NCAA imposed postseason ban, whereas Miami is expected to self-impose a postseason ban for the 2nd year in a row to continue to mitigate against potential sanctions). Miami's offense will score points aplenty against UNC's porous defense (although Duke Johnson is hobbled with a toe injury, still likely to play), but they will need to hit about 50 to win. That's how bad the UNC offense vs. UM defense matchup is....and it will put too much pressure on UM's offense to be absolutely perfect in order to prevail.

North Carolina 46, Miami (Fla.) 35
