Week five of the college football season kicks off on Thursday night with an ACC showdown. The North Carolina Tar Heels make the trip to Hard Rock Stadium to take on the Miami Hurricanes.
The visiting team have won each of the two previous matchups. Last year it was the Hurricanes coming out ahead 24-19.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels have gotten off to a terrible start to the season but they at least come into this game off a victory.
They started off losing against Cal which wasn’t too shocking but the next week they went to East Carolina and got blown out of the water losing 41-19.
In their last game they returned to home sweet home and the offense finally got going putting up 38 points against Pitt to win by three points.
One of the biggest issues for the Tar Heels has been the play of quarterback Nathan Elliott who hasn’t been great coming into this game having thrown only three touchdowns and four interceptions.
In this game he is going to need to be good. He is facing a good Hurricanes defense and he needs to find a way to stop turning the ball over.
On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Hurricanes who started the season with a loss against LSU but have been playing a lot better since then winning three games in a row.
In their last game they took on a rising FIU team winning by 14 points. It wasn’t the most impressive victory but a win is still a win.
The Hurricanes made a change at quarterback against FIU benching Malik Rosier and bringing in freshman N’Kosi Perry who did a nice job throwing for 224 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
All signs point towards N’Kosi getting the start against the Tar Heels but it’s a big storyline to watch going into this one.
To win this game the offense is going to need to be good. They need to get good quarterback play from whoever starts and hopes that leads to a victory.
