The Cavilers, a team which finished last season with a 2-10 overall have now improved to 4-1 in the season as they defeated Duke 28-21 last week. The takeaway from the game was Kurt Benkert finishing 24 for 43 for 182 yards as he struggled with his play early in the game.
The Team’s running game hasn’t yet proven reliable so far in the season, Benkert needs to lead this area if they want a big win on Saturday against the Tar Heels.
North Carolina is stuck with a single win into the season and is still looking for its first home win. They are fresh off 33-10 loss to Norte Dame last week.
Tar Heels’ pitiful situation has arrived at their doors due to an injury storm which hit the team this season. 14 players are out for the Season and six more players are placed on the “Questionable” list for this weekend including Tom Sheldon, the 2017 MVP front-runner who was pulled out of the Notre Dame game early with a leg injury.
The North Carolina offense clearly needs a leader in the unit. They are averaging just 375 yards per game, ranked 89th in Total Offense. Also, the rushing game has failed to find a momentum averaging just over 130 yards per game. Much will be expected of Jordon Brown (65 carries; 297 yards) and Michael Carter (48 carries; 231 yards) on Saturday to lead the unit.
