UNC football receives votes in latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll

·2 min read

Mack Brown and the North Carolina Tar Heels are the lone 3-0 team in the country with the win over Georgia State on Saturday in Atlanta. UNC has gone on the road in back-to-back weeks to get big wins despite a defense that struggled.

But even with the perfect record, the Tar Heels are still on the outside looking in for the latest polls.

On Sunday, the USA TODAY Coaches Poll was released and North Carolina is still in the “receiving votes” section. The Tar Heels received 10 votes, the fifth-fewest among those teams.
