Scott Stadium was alive last week when the Cavaliers found a way to beat the Miami Hurricanes at the death, and now, the place should be even more bananas for a Thursday night appearance on national television against the Tar Heels. This is a rough draw for North Carolina, which was just rolled up for 588 yards and 68 points by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last week. Now, before the team’s head even stops spinning from the triple option assault, the Heels have to hit the road on just four days of rest to take on the Cavaliers, who deploy two different quarterbacks and two totally different offensive styles. It’s just a bad game for sure against a team that absolutely has to have the win, and as long as RB Gio Bernard doesn’t end up going off for some ridiculous game (though he is quite capable of doing so), we see no reason why the Cavaliers aren’t going to keep their season alive with a third straight win to move them within a triumph next week over the Virginia Tech Hokies of making a bowl game.
North Carolina @ Virginia Pick: Virginia Cavaliers +6
North Carolina @ Virginia Score Prediction: Virginia 24 – North Carolina 17
