North Carolina is coming out of its bye week with a 4-0 record. The Tar Heels have been impressive to start the season, picking up wins over South Carolina, Minnesota and Pittsburgh during the month of September.
Quarterback Drake Maye has guided Carolina’s offense through the early part of the season as he adjusts to Chip Lindsey’s offensive system. UNC’s defense, now in Year 2 under Gene Chizik, has also been much-improved in 2023.
Syracuse is coming off of its first loss of the season at home to Clemson in Week 5. The Orange’s offense struggled to get going against Clemson’s elite defensive front.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
