Bet North Carolina at Connecticut

A 40-6 win over The Citadel allowed the Tar Heels to look unbeatable, holding their opponent to just 30 yards rushing while forcing four turnovers. Deunta Williams had two interceptions for the defense. The Citadel had just 153 yards on offense and UNC could do no wrong in the win, as Shaun Draughn rushed for 118 yards and Ryan Houston had two rushing touchdowns. One concern for the Tar Heels was quarterback T.J. Yates, who threw for just 114 yards on 9-of-20 passing. Yates did have two touchdowns and also one interception. UNC picked up a 38-12 win over the Huskies in 2008.

The Huskies are coming off a 23-16 win at Ohio where they led 23-7 in the fourth quarter. Zach Frazer had ups and downs, throwing for two touchdowns and 127 yards, but also had three interceptions. Jordan Todman rushed for 157 yards while Andre Dixon had 100 yards on the ground for Connecticut, which had more yards rushing (259) than Ohio had in total offense (247).
