The Deacs have extra time after the bye week and take the short trip to Chapel Hill to take on their in-state rival North Carolina Tar Heels. Both teams have lost only two games so far this season and seems monumental in terms of cementing a firm stake in the top half of the ACC standings. Wake Forest started off hot last year but barely held on but this year UNC looks to play up to their talent.

Look for the Deacs to continue to lean on their strong running game and resurgent defense. Regardless, I think the game turns out closer than the Vegas experts say so.
