Virginian-Pilot | Norm Wood: Despite the fact that the forecast calls for a 100% chance of rain and wind at kickoff, UNC and Virginia Tech are still scheduled to play on time Saturday afternoon. It could make it challenging for both sides to play at a high level.

Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: Senior Ryan Switzer is on pace to set UNC records in both career receptions and career receiving yards. Switzer dislocated his thumb just before halftime of the Florida State game and shook it off to return for the Heels’ late drive to set up Nick Weiler’s game-winning kick.

ESPN | David Hale: While the ACC has two obvious Heisman candidates in Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky is definitely deserving of Heisman attention. He leads the nation in TD:INT ratio, and has gone 241 passes without a pick.

Carolina Blue | Jarrett Corder: Virginia Tech brings a tough defense to Chapel Hill on Saturday, but that unit has been largely untested to this point. The Hokies have been able to control opposing offenses, but they have yet to face one as potent as Carolina’s.
