The Tar Heels won its last outing against the South Carolina Gamecocks to a score of 24-20 at Chapel Hill in North Carolina the other Saturday evening. The Tar Heels stand at 1-0 in the regular season under Head Coach Dave Clawson on his 5th year with UNC. The University of Carolina Tar Heels visit its neighboring academic institution to bash bodies with the Demon Deacons at BB&T Field at Groves Stadium in Winston-Salem on Friday night.

The Demon Deacons has now a 2-0 win/loss tally in the regular season for the 4th straight year and are aiming for their 3rd successive win in this contest. Their first match was also a winner for Wake Forest against the Utah State Aggies with a score of 38-35 but lost the ATS at -5. While in Winston-Salem, the Demon Deacons won their second game in a row against the Rice University Owls with a score of 41-21 last Friday night.

AP Poll

Howell hurled a 22 yard touchdown pass to WR Dyami Brown in the 4th quarter. QB Sam Howell of the Tar Heels bannered the University of Carolina from an 11 point deficit and rose up over the Southern Carolina Gamecocks to win the match. The Gamecocks built a 20-9 lead from the Tar Heels through a QB Jake Bentley pass to TE Kyle Markway for 22 yard touchdown in the third quarter. The first year QB then sped in a 2-point conversion finishing a drive of 98 yards.

The public betting is backing Wake Forest today, but I am sticking with UNC at home. Wake is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five after a loss. Despite the setback against Wofford, I dont see the Heels taking a step back in the ACC opener at home. UNC is 28-11-2 ATS in their last 41 home games. North Carolina has won four straight meetings with Wake Forest, but the Demon Deacons have covered the spread in the last two meetings.

The Owls allowed 280.1 passing yards per game last year, the worst in Conference USA and 124th in Division I football out of 129 teams. Last week, the pass defense essentially had the day off facing Army and its triple-option offense, but that won't be the case on Friday night against Newman, who completed 34-of-47 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns last week. The model has factored in that the Demon Deacons and quarterback Jamie Newman have a strong matchup against the Rice pass defense.

Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and will air live on ESPN2. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 162.5 points. Todays game takes place from the Dean E.

Its going to be a rough fight for the Demon Deacons, but now that Jamie Newman has been named the starting quarterback and the situation is settled, theyll get the offense going right away and force the Aggies to press. As good as Utah State will be as the season goes on, its not going to be as sharp as it needs to be right away.
