North Carolina Tar Heels 6-1

Last week: 26-13 win over UVA
Last rank: 1st

By virtue of another victory, the North Carolina Tar Heels remain atop of the ACC Coastal Power Rankings. Though Duke or Pittsburgh has an argument to lay claim to the top spot in the rankings, both teams won at the last minute, while North Carolina took care of its business against a team it was supposed to beat.

Quarterback Marquise Williams led the Tar Heels with 226 yards passing, while RB Elijah Hood starred for North Carolina, rushing for 2 touchdowns. Gene Chizik’s defense forced 5 turnovers against the Wahoos. The Tar Heels have an important matchup for supremacy of the division on Thursday, as they travel to Heinz Field to face the Pittsburgh Panthers.
