Heels Look to Continue Running

Game: Minnesota at North Carolina

Location: Chapel Hill

TV/Time: ESPN/3:30 pm

Line/Total: UNC -7/51

Before the season, North Carolina decided to turn over a new leaf and go from an exciting pass-first offense to a more balanced attack.

Mack Brown and the coaching staff have stayed disciplined in their new outlook in wins over South Carolina and Appalachian State.

North Carolina is ranked 9th nationally in rushing. The ground attack is led by Omarion Hampton’s 271 yards and five touchdowns.

Minnesota’s defense is allowing 131 yards per game. That ranks 76 in the country.

How does this impact Drake Maye’s Heisman Trophy candidate?

Mack Brown doesn’t think it’s an issue.

“Drake’s wonderful and we only want to win, period, 100%,” Tar Heels coach Mack Brown said. “We’re not into any of the other stuff. Somebody asked Drake after the game … ‘What about not throwing as much?’ or something. He said, ‘I would’ve handed it to Omarion, too. Nobody could stop him.’

Prediction: North Carolina -7
