Two top twenty-five teams in the SEC lost this week, and they both fell to teams UNC will be facing in the next five weeks. First South Carolina's defense shut down Georgia. Then South Florida forced five Auburn turnovers en route to an overtime win. The defenses only get tougher for the Heels from here on out.
As for the rest of the non-conference foes, we all know what ECU was doing, and even James Madison was scoring big in a Top 10 D1-AA matchup. It'll be interesting to see how UNC's scheule strength increases as the season wears on.
