After an unexpected two week break, North Carolina returned to the field last weekend and picked up a win over Boston College. It was exactly a pretty win, and the Tar Heels definitely came away with some things to improve on. Hopefully they did, because they have a big game this week.
For the first time since 2016, UNC will play in a game between two ranked teams as Virginia Tech is coming to town today. The Hokies come in at #19 after also starting the season 2-0. Like UNC, Virginia Tech has dealt with some game cancellations, and they’ve even had players miss time due to COVID-19. One of those is quarterback Hendon Hooker, who is expected to be back for today’s game.
