Tar Heels News 10/16/16: UNC makes case for return to ACC Championship game

Takeaways from UNC’s win over Miami

NCAA Football: North Carolina at Miami Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

GoHeels.com | Turner Walston: Prior to the Virginia Tech game, Carolina’s offense won two straight games for the team with late-game drives to win over Pittsburgh and Florida State. The defensive unit felt their time was coming, and it did against the Hurricanes on Saturday.

Tar Heel Illustrated | Andrew Jones: Some of the biggest positives to take away from UNC’s win over Miami included forcing 3-and-outs and getting off to another strong start. Nick Weiler was also a standout, as well as the Mitch Trubisky to Bug Howard connection.

CBS Sports | Brandon Wise: After beating Miami and sweeping the state of Florida with their earlier win over Florida State, the Tar Heels look poised for a return to Florida in December for the ACC Championship game if they can pull off winning the Coastal division.

GoHeels.com | Bobby Hundley: Looking at the win over Miami, Trubisky followed up the worst game of his career with another strong performance, the highly criticized defense turned in their most complete performance of the year, and Ryan Switzer came away with the record for most career receptions as a Tar Heel.
