Miami vs. UNC Game Time, Spread, Channel, Announcers

North Carolina receiver Dazz Newsome falls out of bounds after getting a toe down for a touchdown catch ahead of Miami safety Gurvan Hall Jr. in the final minute of Saturday’s game at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. The catch sent the Tar Heels to a 2

Two games in, the Tar Heels are playing like they're free from that burden - fittingly led by the composed true freshman who isn't the least bit interested in experiencing any of that frustration.

The five-goal onslaught by the Tar Heels in the second quarter was the clear turning point in the game. "I have confidence in all 10 guys on the field with me".

The Hurricanes had a chance on their last possession to tie the score, but Bubba Baxa's 49-yard attempt went wide left. Howell threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns. Both teams are coming off emotional rivalry games.

Howell finished Saturday's game 16-of-24 for 279 yards and two touchdowns. Miami had taken its first and only lead of the game when Jarren Williams found Will Mallory for an 11-yard strike with 4:38 left.


Miami is surely heartbroken over this one and it's a tough loss that feels like it sets Miami back in terms of momentum. The Hurricanes were nearly equally pleased with the effort of their redshirt freshman Jarren Williams in his first collegiate start as he made plays and gave Miami a chance to win - "I thought our guys were confident that they were going to win the game until the final play", head coach Manny Diaz told reporters - despite huge pressure from a tough Florida defense that came away with 10 sacks. The extra time off will be a factor in getting the offensive line and special teams improved for Week 2.

The Tar Heels prevailed in Week 1 against SC, but they also have things to work on from their opener. "There is not a guy in that locker room right now, coaches included, that can't do more and can't play or coach better than they are right now". North Carolina comes in with confidence after rallying to defeat SC while the Hurricanes showed fight but fell short in a mistake-prone outing against then-No.

"I came back, (wife) Sally came back, just to be positive and try to help the kids", Brown said. After scraping by against the Gamecocks, North Carolina will have to make sure that their yards are more rewarded than they were last weekend. This is two nobody expected us to win.

Things were looking up for Miami after a 10-point second quarter, but that lead would fizzle away before giving way to a 24-20 Florida victory on a Feleipe Franks touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter. Howell was helped tremendously by a ground game that churned out 238 yards, led by Javonte Williams (102 yards) and Michael Carter (77), but the going figures to be much more hard against a Hurricanes defense that will look to keep the pressure on the young quarterback. All these kinks can be worked out next week as Miami faces off against Bethune-Cookman at 4:00PM/EST on ACC Network.
