CBS Sports experts predict winner in North Carolina-Oregon game
North Carolina is set to face Oregon in the Holiday Bowl on Wednesday night.
It’s a big game for the Tar Heels, who are looking to secure their first 10-win season since 2015. North Carolina is entering this contest with a three-game losing streak.
CBS Sports’ panel of experts unanimously picked Oregon to win the game outright. However, the Tar Heels were a near-unanimous pick against the spread. Carolina is a 13-point underdog to the Ducks.
Here’s how CBS Sports’ picks break down:
- Dennis Dodd: North Carolina
- Tom Fornelli: North Carolina
- Chip Patterson: North Carolina
- Barrett Sallee: North Carolina
- Shehan Jeyarajah: Oregon
- David Cobb: North Carolina
- Jerry Palm: North Carolina
Both North Carolina and Oregon will be without several starters in this game due to various reasons. However, both quarterbacks — Bo Nix and Drake Maye — are set to start this contest.
This is the first-ever meeting between North Carolina and Oregon.
Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.
