Meanwhile, the Hurricanes lost 24-20 to Florida two weeks ago in their season opener in a game that was closer than oddsmakers expected.

UNC: The Tar Heels were coming off a close win against SC in the opener, which provided a jolt of optimism considering they had closed out the kind of close game that they kept giving away a year earlier.

Miami is looking to get back on track after losing 24-20 to Florida in their opener in Week 0. Miami (FL) might not end up being that great of a team but this would be a big win for the Tar Heels.

Miami's defensive line is much better than what we saw in Week 0. A match-up of two freshman quarterbacks is an exciting prospect and both teams will likely light up the scoreboard.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Through the first three quarters, UNC had only 20 rushing yards and was averaging less than a yard per carry.

Miami is going to be well-rested for this matchup after they had a bye in Week 1.

The last time UNC started a season 2-0 was in 2014.

There are several issues the Hurricanes need to improve on in Week 2. They committed 14 penalties for 118 yards, with those 14 penalties tied with No. 19 Michigan State for the most in the Bowl Subdivision ranks. Dallas showed what he's capable of and Williams is a promising signal-caller.

The win today preserves the Tar Heel's ideal record at 4-0 and marks their first shutout of the season. As painful as it was to swallow Saturday night's 28-25 loss to the Tar Heels - and the first 0-2 start at Miami since 1978 - Miami's leading receiver knew it wasn't going to be a good look for him to storm off the field in anger before the game was over.

Howell, the first true freshman quarterback to ever start the season opener for the Tar Heels, was handcuffed by conservative play calling in the first half against SC but was unleashed after falling behind by 11 points and ended up hitting 15-of-24 passes for 245 yards and the two late touchdowns. As a result, the Tar Heels will be bringing a great deal of momentum into this matchup after completing a furious fourth quarter comeback against SC in head coach Mack Brown's return to action. UNC rushed for 238 yards in 52 carries vs. North Carolina won its game against SC outright despite getting points.

The Tar Heels' running game, their bread and butter, was not very good on Saturday. North Carolina odds, while the over-under is 46.5.

I like Miami's chances of bouncing back in Week 2. The catch sent the Tar Heels to a 28-25 come-from-behind victory. In a span of less than 10 minutes, North Carolina tallied almost all of its six goals.

Despite UNC's struggles to run the ball, Howell played well.
