After a bye last weekend, the Tar Heels are back in action tonight, and it’s arguably the most marquee game of the season.
Coming into this season, this was seen as a potential battle of top ten teams, but that hasn’t come to pass, mostly due to the North Carolina’s struggles. Notre Dame haven’t been quite as good as their preseason #9 ranking, taking a loss to Cincinnati, and looking less than impressive in a couple other wins. However, they also come in as clear favorites, ranked #11 with a 6-1.
These two teams met last year in Chapel Hill, with Notre Dame coming away with the win. The Tar Heels played the eventual College Football Playoff team close for the first half, but the Irish eventually wore them down and pulled away. This year’s game will be a test to see if UNC’s made any progress from their struggles in the first half of the season.
