By this point, UNC’s shock and disappointment from the UVA loss have ended.
Carolina score just 10 second-half points in a 31-27 home loss on Saturday. Drake Maye threw for over 300 yards, but only completed half of his passes. Omarion Hampton looked great on the ground, but UVA nearly doubled UNC in carries.
The Tar Heels no longer have a shot at making the College Football Playoff, but they still have an ACC crown to chase.
UNC is still tied for second in the ACC with Louisville, but trails conference leader Florida State by a game-and-a-half. Louisville hosts Duke at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, while the Seminoles make a trip up to Winston-Salem for a Saturday noon kickoff.
If Carolina actually doesn’t underestimate an opponent this time and plays the well-rounded game it’s capable of playing, it could be in sole possession of second place. If Wake Forest pulls off its greatest upset in recent memory, UNC may be a half-game out of first place.
The Tar Heels have to take care of its kryptonite, Georgia Tech, on Saturday night. The Yellow Jackets may be just 3-4, but possess a deadly rushing attack and the ACC’s passing touchdown leader in Haynes King. Like Carolina, its Saturday opponent also has an upset of Miami in its back pocket.
