After suffering a devastating loss to the Virginia Cavaliers, the North Carolina Tar Heels (6-1) are determined to bounce back and secure a win against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-4). This is not just about redemption for the Tar Heels, but also revenge for their 21-17 defeat against the Yellow Jackets at Kenan Stadium last season. That loss marked the beginning of a four-game losing streak that nearly ruined the Tar Heels’ season.
Interestingly, the Tar Heels were heavily favored to win against Virginia, a team that had only won once throughout the season. However, UNC’s embarrassing loss calls for a strong comeback this weekend to prove themselves as the dominating ACC team that many believed they were.
Despite the odds being in North Carolina’s favor, the team has only won two out of their last twelve games in Atlanta. Georgia Tech has consistently caused trouble for the Tar Heels, and playing away from home adds another layer of challenge to this game. Here’s how you can watch it:
