OUR PREDICTION: North Carolina has issues closing down games, which will be a problem today against Georgia Tech. The Tar Heels have been outscored 54-20 in the fourth quarter this season and now face a Yellow Jackets team that can milk clock in the second half and protect leads. Georgia Tech leads the nation in rushing offense but also ranks 14th in total defense. I don’t like this matchup for UNC and will be laying the points with Georgia Tech.
