The fans at Lane Stadium will be treated to a game between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Virginia Tech Hokies when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA (1-6, 0-4 ACC): Harris replaced Chazz Surratt last week and completed only 7-of-18 passes for 46 yards with three interceptions, but Fedora felt “Brandon’s decision-making in the game was fine and that there was one interception that he would like to have back.” The offensive highlight last week was 5-9 freshman Michael Carter, who ran for a season-high 157 yards and two touchdowns, including 127 yards and both of his scores in the third quarter as the Tar Heels came back from a 10-0 halftime deficit. Jackson, whose TD passes are the most ever by a Virginia Tech freshman, needs 141 yards to overtake Michael Vick’s freshman record for passing yards (1,840 in 1999) and is looking forward to attacking a defense that is surrendering 31 points and 461 yards per contest.

ABOUT VIRGINIA TECH (5-1, 1-1): Jackson leads the ACC in passer rating (158.17), which is 13th in FBS, is third in the conference in total offense (309 yards per game) and fifth in passing yards per game (283.3). Wide receiver Cam Phillips, who ranks second in Tech history with 207 catches and third in receiving yards with 2,671, is hopeful to return after leaving the Boston College game with a foot sprain. Led by defensive backs Brandon Facyson, Greg Stroman and Adonis Alexander, opponents are completing just 44 percent of its passes for 387 yards with only one TD in three home games this season, and the defense is second in the ACC and seventh in FBS in scoring defense (13.7 points).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hokies as 21-point favorites versus the Tar Heels, while the game’s total is sitting at 51½ according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

Teams heading in opposite directions meet Saturday when North Carolina visits No. 14 Virginia Tech during homecoming weekend. The Hokies are 5-1 with their lone loss against defending champion Clemson and coming off a bye week after dropping Boston College 23-10 on Oct. 7, while the Tar Heels are trying to avoid a fifth consecutive loss in one season for the first time since 2006.

With a record-setting quarterback and a stingy defense, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente needs to make sure his surging team doesn’t overlook its struggling opponent. “Well, you don’t have to look at the film very long to realize that they have good players, they’re very well-coached,” Fuente told the media earlier this week. “We have a tremendous amount of respect for coach (Larry) Fedora and the program, the history and the talent that they have on that roster.” The Tar Heels have averaged just 12 points per outing during their skid after last week’s 20-14 defeat against Virginia, and their only win has come against FCS foe Old Dominion. Virginia Tech will have a decided advantage at the quarterback spot, as Josh Jackson leads all FBS freshmen with 1,700 passing yards and 13 touchdowns and is second in passer rating (158.2), while North Carolina will give LSU transfer Brandon Harris his second start of the season Saturday.

Virginia Tech was a 23-10 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Eagles. They failed to cover the -16-point spread as favorites, while the total score (33) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for North Carolina, they were a 20-14 loser as they battled Cavaliers at home. North Carolina failed to cover in the match as a +3-point underdog, while 34 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
