What to Know

North Carolina has had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. On Saturday they take on Virginia Tech at 7:00 p.m. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.

There's no need to mince words: North Carolina lost to Miami (Fla.) two weeks ago, and they lost bad. The score wound up at 47-10. North Carolina got a solid performance out of Chazz Surratt, who rushed for 69 yards and 1 touchdown; unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the victory.

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech's and Notre Dame's match last Saturday was up for grabs at halftime, but Virginia Tech was thoroughly outmatched in the second half. Virginia Tech suffered a grim 45-23 defeat to Notre Dame.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. With six turnovers, North Carolina had trouble holding onto the ball. We'll see if Virginia Tech exploits that vulnerability.
