The North Carolina Tar Heels return to Chapel Hill after a dramatic last-second win against Florida State. In a Top 25 ranked matchup, both UNC and Virginia Tech are undefeated in conference play. The winner will be in the driver's seat in the Coastal against Miami, as the Hurricanes play tonight in prime time against a Florida State team hungry for their first conference win.

Last week, the Hokies won easily against East Carolina at home in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech put up 38 before the Pirates got on the board in the second half. The Tar Heels will need to contain dual-threat quarterback Jerod Evans. Virginia Tech has a balanced offensive attack, and can score on the ground or through the air. Let's look for Mitch Trubisky and the high-powered Tar Heel offense to set the pace today.

Kickoff is at 3:30 PM at Kenan Memorial Stadium. Watch live on ABC/ESPN2 and tune in to Jones Angell and the Tar Heels Sports Network on your local THSN affiliate. Post your comments below and check out Tar Heel Blog after the game for recaps and analysis.
