North Carolina’s season opener wasn’t the start we expected for quarterback Sam Howell, as he struggled mightily in an upset loss to Virginia Tech.

The Tar Heels had a much lighter task in Week 2 against Georgia State, and Howell bounced back with a dominant performance, throwing for 352 yards and three touchdowns, and added another 104 yards and two more scores on the ground.

Howell looked much more like the top quarterback prospect many expected him to be this year, but he’ll need to do it against tougher opponents if he wants to be one of the top players selected in next year’s draft.
