UNC Tar Heels
It’s basketball season now along Tobacco Road. Duke’s season went south very soon after ACC play began. North Carolina has been bad right from the start.
The Tar Heels won at Old Dominion in Week 2 before losing six straight after that. UNC has won its last two games, though: at Pitt (it’s first and only ACC win) and then against Western Carolina. When you’ve only won two games all season, you’ll take them against anyone you can get a win against.
Freshman Chazz Surratt was the starting quarterback for the first five games but he lost his job and has only attempted 13 passes in the last five weeks. He has only appeared under center in three of them.
Nathan Elliott started the last three and has the two wins. He’s also made some plays with both his feet and his arm. Elliott threw three INTs in his first start, a very close loss — and easy cover — against Miami. Since then, he’s thrown six touchdowns without a pick.
He took off and ran 21 times in that Miami game. They weren’t all by design; often times, he was running for his life. But Elliott has some dual-play ability back there. He’s completed over 64 percent of his passes in the last two wins.
North Carolina State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack started its season 6–1 but three losses in the last four have put a damper on what was an exciting season for NC State fans.
The first two losses weren’t bad at all. The ‘Pack lost at Notre Dame and then by just a touchdown against Clemson. After a narrow win at Boston College, NC State dropped the ball last week in a six-point loss at Wake Forest.
The reality is that this team has had a good season but its still a tall task to ask it to go on the road and come back home with a win, even against a team underneath it in the standings. Ryan Finley threw 52 times for 327 yards and a touchdown. He also tossed a pick though. Two lost fumbles by the offense hurt NC State’s chances on the road, though.
The only two teams that have managed to beat NC State in Raleigh this season have been South Carolina and Clemson, though. UNC isn’t in that sort of company so this should still be a game the Wolfpack can finish a good season on a high note with.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
I like the Red in this game. North Carolina State will be determined to win this rivalry game and finish strong as it heads back to a bowl game. But UNC has some life with its new quarterback and two-game winning streak. I like the Wolfpack by 10 and a UNC cover.
