Dawg Preview: North Carolina Tar Heels vs Syracuse Orange


We are set for a great ACC match-up this Saturday in Kenan Memorial Stadium, between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Syracuse Orange. Both teams come in with a combined record of 8-1. The Tarheels are looking to go 5-0 for the first time since 1997. This game has the potential to be one of the best games of the weekend.

T.V. 3:30 on ESPN

Dave Pasch and Dusty Dvoracek will be on the call.

What's at stake:

Both teams are looking to stay near the top of the ACC. UNC is looking to make a statement that the road, to the ACC championship, runs through Chapel Hill. This game will be a hard-hitting contest and a fun game to watch.


Key Players: North Carolina Tar Heels

QB Drake Maye: Must have a good game protecting the ball he has thrown 4 int on the season.

Offensive line: Has to give Drake Maye time to throw the ball.

RB: Omarion Hampton


Key Players: Syracuse Orange

QB Garrett Shrader is a dual-threat QB with a big arm

The Defensive line has to put pressure on Drake Maye

RB Lequint Allen must have a solid day in the running game


Prediction:

This game has big game potential all over it. I expect both teams to play at a very high level this weekend. UNC has the edge talent-wise in certain areas. The Tarheels to me are finally starting to play up to their potential this year. I can't wait to watch this game it's going to be a good one to watch. It's going to be a loud sold-out crowd and I think that will be a big advantage for UNC.
