This is never going to be as interesting as when they meet on the hardwood but the Blue Devils are undefeated and you can bet the Tar Heels would like to put a stop to that.
Duke is definitely one of the surprise team of the first month of the season. I am still not sure what to make of them. I think this number will draw some attention right until kickoff.
Duke Blue Devils
Most did not have Duke as a contender in the ACC but with 2 wins over Power 5 programs they definitely have people paying attention early. Their win over Northwestern was especially impressive.
Daniel Jones may have a plain sounding name but the big sophomore QB gives the offense a little of everything. His numbers are up from a solid frosh campaign.
Duke’s defensive numbers are off the charts right now, 4th against run, 9th in yards allowed.
Those numbers have to regress because they just do not have that kind of elite talent but if they stay in the top 40 this team could have a really good season.
North Carolina Tar Heels
After a couple of close losses the Tar Heels beat Old Dominion last week to notch their first victory. The true level of this team is being determined but they can still be dangerous.
Losing the second pick in the draft opened an opportunity at QB for North Carolina. Transfer Brandon Harris was given his chance but now it looks like the job is freshman’s Chazz Surratt’s.
He is not perfect but has yet to throw a pick.
Bad defense continue to plague the Tar Heels. It was no surprise that they were torched by Lamar Jackson and Louisville but even Cal put up a ton of yards in the opener. This is a game the defense has to come to play.

In hoops I hate Duke but on the girdiron I kind of root for them. I know a regression is coming for this group the question is when. This week?

Obviously three is a better number but I like home underdogs and think UNC might be better than what they have shown. Not great, just better.
This will not be a blowout though as Duke is very disciplined and will have some success against their rivals. Last team with the ball should salt away the game.
