This out of conference game is set to be played in Chapel Hill as the Tar Heels take on the Fighting Irish. The home team is heavy underdogs in this one as Notre Dame has played so well through the first 5 games.
North Carolina has looked awful through the first as they have lost the first 4 out of 5 games and have not played well on either offense or defense. If North Carolina is going to have any shred of a chance in this one they will have to step up on both sides of the ball.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Look at these guys now, after a year where they almost fired their head coach and had one of the best passers go to the NFL. This team is playing completely different football, although their opponents have been sub par.
The question for the Fighting Irish is if they are for real. Losing their only game of the season to Georgia where they lost by one point in a heart breaking loss.
Rushing for over 300 yards a game without running the triple option has the Irish in a great position to really put some points on the board. Look for this team to take advantage of the home teams weak defensive line.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels come into the game winners of only one game this year to an FCS school that they faced at home. Although putting up a lot of points on the board has come easy, the North Carolina defense has been horrific.
Because the run game for the Fighting Irish is so good, they will need to stop the run first. This means they might have to put 8 people in the box at all times and sell out for the run on most plays.
If the Tar Heel defense can limit what the Notre Dame defense does on the ground then they will have a decent shot at getting the cover. But, if the Fighting Irish offense runs wild expect them to get blown out at home.

The North Carolina offense is good enough to cover in this game but the game will have a lot of points being scored. We should see a better game than expected but Notre Dame will bleed the clock with the run game and get it going.
Watch for the deep ball from Notre Dame as the game goes on and the play action gets better. The North Carolina defense has been really bad defending the pass and this is something the Irish will expand on.
