The biggest question of the weekend is whether QB Bryn Renner is going to be starting for the Tar Heels or not. At this point, we have to make the assumption that he is, and if he does, he will be a huge difference maker. This team was a complete waste without Renner offensively against the stout defense of the Virginia Tech Hokies, and after watching what this Miami defense has done at times this year, we have to believe that the Hurricanes would find themselves just as successful. Remember that the Tar Heels are based on throwing the football, and the Canes rank first in the nation, allowing just 142.4 yards per game through the air. However, the Hurricanes have played a suspect schedule, and they really haven’t played against a team with any semblance of a passing game at this point in the season.

The key is going to be on the other side of the ball. The Tar Heels have only played two home games this year, and they have played a heck of a schedule to date, but they have allowed nearly 200 rushing yards per game and 435.8 total yards per game for the season. That’s just not going to cut it. If the Tar Heels can’t figure out how to keep Miami under 400 yards, this is going to be an ugly game. Fortunately for UNC, this won’t be a track meet in our eyes. The defense in Carolina Blue is going to rise up to the challenge and give the offense a chance to make some things happen. Don’t be shocked if the Tar Heels win this game at the death, as they are a very comparable team to Miami from our perspective in spite of their records at this point in the season. Getting more than a TD is a gift.

Miami vs. North Carolina Pick: North Carolina Tar Heels +8
Miami @ North Carolina Score Prediction: North Carolina 27 – Miami 24
