Before kick-off, the transfer wideout was not seen with the skill players for warm-up, leaving room to believe he would not be lacing up. That belief is confirmation, as UNC is now down two critical weapons in a primetime game.
No Nate McCollum tonight for #UNC.
The Tar Heels are already without one of their top targets in Tez Walker. Big misses.

The good news is that North Carolina does have good depth and experience at the wideout position, with Kobe Paysour and J.J. Jones expected to be the two receivers counted on to make up the loss of Walker and McCollum.
