As the Tar Heels sit at just 1-4 on the season, it’s hard to blame anyone for finding something else to do with their Saturday that doesn’t involve watching Carolina football. The game many people had circled when the schedule was released during happier times is here, though, and plenty will be packing Kenan Stadium for the chance to see Notre Dame.
Few, if any, actually believe the Tar Heels can upset the Fighting Irish Saturday afternoon. That kind of low stakes game can be boring, but it can also be a stress-free way to enjoy football. Any positives that happen are just icing on the cake. I’m really selling this well, huh?
