I think one of the biggest factors in this game will be Time of Possession. UNC running the hurry up will give us the ball more. I'm hoping that due to this the UNC defense will be worn out by start of the 4th quarter.
agreed. UNC usually has fewer ToP (only had one favorable game last year vs. idaho). we lost our two most unfavorable games (#1 louisville, #2 GT) but won our third and fourth unfavorable. i think you can also look at the number of snaps to determine the quality of time out on field for the D. three of our four losses were from the games with the most unfavorable offensive snaps differential (#1 dook, #2 louisville and #3 GT).
