No. 21 North Carolina faces another critical ACC test in just the third game of the season as the Virginia Cavaliers visit Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels (1-1, 0-1 ACC) can’t afford to be two games down if they plan on keeping their Coastal Division title hopes alive. But the Cavaliers (2-0, 0-0) won’t be an easy out.
UVA has won the past four games in the longest running football series in the South — including last season’s 44-41 victory in Charlottesville.
The Cavaliers are led by quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who currently has edged out UNC quarterback Sam Howell to lead the ACC in total offense with 387.5 yards per game. Howell averages 349.5 yards per game.
Saturday’s UNC football game will be broadcast on the ACC Network.
