  • Carolina March: UNC vs. Virginia Tech: Position Grades

    What a game that was last night between the North Carolina Tar Heels and Virginia Tech Hokies. And I don't say that in the fashion of "Wow what an incredible game I can't wait to show my kids one day," but I mean that in the way of "Wow I would love to erase the last 30 minutes of that game from my memory forever."

    In all seriousness, that was a fun game up until the last few overtimes. The Tar Heels gave up 43 points, but the defense did come up big in a few spots.

  • Tar Heel Times: Tar Heels Left Lamenting Lapses After 6 OT Loss To Hokies

    This one isn't on Noah Ruggles. His two missed field goal attempts in overtime will get plenty of air time in the highlights, but there were so many missed opportunities for North Carolina that it's impossible to blame one play in Virginia Tech's 43-41 victory over the Tar Heels. "I don't think I have anything necessarily to put into words," receiver Beau Corrales said. (Heels Maven)

  • Fansided: UNC Football: Sam Howell breaks Tar Heels' record

    The North Carolina Tar Heels are coming off a disappointing loss on the road at Virginia Tech, falling to 3-4 on the year and 2-2 in conference play.

    But not all is bad right now. The program is showing signs of improving and are still in contention to reach a bowl game. A bright spot for the Tar Heels has been freshman quarterback Sam Howell who has played very well through the first seven games.

    With his five touchdown passes in the loss to Virginia Tech, Howell set a new freshman record for most touchdown passes in a season.

  • Fansided: UNC Football: Tar Heels currently hold Top 20 recruiting class

    There is still a lot of excitement surrounding the North Carolina Tar Heels football program as they head into Saturday's game vs. the Virginia Tech Hokies on the road.

    Keeping QB Sam Howell out of harm's way is among the priorities for UNC. Protecting himself has to be Howell's mindset as well, his coach said. It has been a process for Howell, the freshman who has dazzled at times with his play-making abilities and his knack for orchestrating comebacks. Howell also has left himself exposed in certain situations. (Wilmington Star News)

  • Keeping It Heel: UNC Football vs. Virginia Tech: Game info, preview and more

    The North Carolina Tar Heels return to the field on Saturday after a bye week at 3-2 and tied for first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division. A win on Saturday means UNC will at least be tied with either Duke or Virginia, who play eachother, atop the standings after Week 8.

    That's huge.

    After winning just two ACC games over the past two years, Mack Brown has his team in position to contend for the Coastal Division and play in the Conference Championship Game. But standing ahead of them is a tough road game at Virginia Tech.
