The Mack Brown 2.0 era could not have gotten off to a better start last weekend. Brown marked his return to the Tar Heel sidelines by coaching UNC to a 24-20 over South Carolina in Charlotte. Now, he’ll lead the team out at Kenan Stadium for the first time in nearly 22 years.
This week, the Tar Heels will host Miami in their home opener. The Hurricanes also played a SEC team at a neutral site to kick off their 2019 season, but it did not go as well for them. Back on August 24th in Jacksonville, Miami lost to Florida by an identical 24-20 score. The Hurricanes come into this game with a well regarded defense, which should provide Sam Howell and UNC offense with a stern test. However, it doesn’t seem like a totally un-winnable game, considering what the Heels did in week one.
