It’s been a while since any UNC fan had to worry about making time to watch football after Christmas. It’s a good problem to have, for sure. Carolina’s first season with Mack Brown back as head coach was a clear improvement over the last few seasons, and a bowl game win would be a nice cherry on top.
The Tar Heels won their season finale against NC State what feels like forever ago now. With a core of players largely all expected to return aside from graduating seniors, any momentum gained from a win today would do nicely to carry over into excitement for Year 2 of The Return of the Mack.
If you’re not in Annapolis today to see the Heels take on Temple, you can follow along with us here. The game will be on ESPN and the ESPN app, and radio listeners can catch it on the Tar Heel Sports Network.
As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...
