We have reached week nine of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s an ACC showdown when the North Carolina Tar Heels make the trip to Scott Stadium to take on the Virginia Cavaliers.
The visiting team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels haven’t had a good season and come into this game having only one win so far this year and chances are there is going to be some changes made at the end of the season.
In their last game the offense actually played really well against the Syracuse Orange but they couldn’t get it done in overtime losing by three points.
The 37 was a nice change for a team that only scored 29 points total the previous two games. The Tar Heels are led at quarterback by Nathan Elliott who has played decent throwing for 1241 yards. six touchdowns, and four interceptions.
The defense has been bad all year giving up 34 points per game and it’s something that is going to need to be good in this game.
If the defense struggles and gives up big chunk plays they are going to have a hard time coming out with a win in this one.
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Cavaliers who were expected to finish near the bottom of the ACC but they have had a ton of success.
They come into this game with a 5-2 record and they are also 6-1 against the spread. The Cavaliers strength is on the defensive side of the ball giving up only 18.4 points per game.
On the offensive side the Cavaliers are led by quarterback Bryce Perkins who is a duel threat quarterback who gets it done on the ground and through the air. He has thrown for 1406 yards, 12 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
To win this game the defense needs to be good early and really create a message for the Tar Heels. Perkins also needs to continue to throw touchdowns.
