Russell Athletic Bowl: North Carolina vs Baylor, 5:30 PM
TV: ESPN
Announcers: Mike Patrick, Ed Cunningham
Line: UNC -1 to -3, over/under 73 to 74.5

You could argue UNC has already had a wildly successful season and what happens in this game won't change that. However winning 12 games would be something that has never happened before in UNC history. For the members of this team it is a legacy no other Tar Heel can claim.

Baylor has been depleted by injury but Art Briles' system is still plenty dangerous and the Bears have some playmakers on defense. Baylor led the Big 12 in tackles for loss with 95.0 and had 28.0 sacks to go along with that number. While both teams have offense as a calling card, the defense will have plenty of say, especially if the Tar Heels can add to its ACC 25 turnovers forced.

Comments if you have 'em.
