What to Know
Get ready for an ACC battle as the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Florida State Seminoles will face off at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium. UNC is coming into the contest with an unblemished 3-0 record.
Don't be fooled by the insanely high score: we promise the Tar Heels and the Virginia Tech Hokies were playing football. UNC bagged a 56-45 win last week. RB Michael Carter was a one-man wrecking crew for UNC, rushing for two TDs and 214 yards on 17 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Carter's 62-yard touchdown rush in the fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, FSU lost to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the road by a decisive 42-26 margin. QB Jordan Travis put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for one TD and 204 yards on 24 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 96 yards.
North Carolina's victory lifted them to 3-0 while Florida State's loss dropped them down to 1-3. We'll find out if UNC can add another positive mark to their record or if the Seminoles can shake off the defeat and take the spring out of North Carolina's step.
