After a week off, North Carolina Tar Heels football is back in action this weekend, in a potentially crucial game in the ACC Coastal Division race.
Tonight, the Heels are set to host Pitt, who come in to Chapel Hill at 1-2 in conference play. They are one of four teams in the Coastal who have just two losses in conference play, trailing Carolina, who come in at 3-0. Of the four teams, UNC already hold the head-to-head in two of the matchups. A win tonight would put the Tar Heels within touching distance of the division crown.
However, it’s not going to be an easy game. While the Panthers’ offense isn’t as high-flying as last year’s ACC champions, they’re led by Israel Abanikanda, who had a 320 yard, six touchdown game a few weeks back. The defense will need to step it up against him, or we could be in for another shootout.
