North Carolina (4-1) took care of Virginia Tech with ease on Saturday, crushing the Hokies 41-10 and moving into a tie for first place in ACC Coastal standings. Quarterback Drake Maye had a banner day, throwing for 363 yards and three touchdowns, and adding another 73 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The Tar Heels started their season with a shaky win over Appalachian State, and were handed their only loss by Notre Dame in Week 4.
Miami’s early stint in the rankings was ruined by back-to-back losses to Texas A&M and Middle Tennessee State. Week 5 was off for the Hurricanes, and the Tar Heels will be their first ACC opponent of the season as they head into the conference portion of their schedule.
