The Heels have a very talented offense, but they struggled last week against the triple-option (to be mild), in their 68-50 record-breaking loss. They won’t be facing the option this week when they take on UVa and QB Michael Rocco. Virginia (4-6, 2-4) is looking to run the table. North Carolina is led by RB Giovani Bernard, who became the first Tar Heels player in 20 years to run for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. He also leads the ACC in rushing (143.6ypg) and ranks 8th nationally.
