No. 21 North Carolina travels to Georgia Tech aiming for a different outcome that its first road game this season. The Tar Heels (2-1, 1-1 ACC) are just 5-6 on the road in coach Mack Brown’s three seasons of his second tenure in Chapel Hill, including their 17-10 loss at Virginia Tech in the season opener.
Saturday’s game has the potential to be a little different, as it will be played in Atlanta’s 71,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium instead of on-campus at Bobby Dodd Stadium. That will give more Carolina fans a chance to attend the game and even out the Yellow Jackets’ home field advantage.
The matchup will pit two of the nation’s top 10 units in a head-to-head battle. The Tar Heels rank sixth nationally in total offense averaging 553 yards per game. The Jackets (1-2, 0-1) are fifth nationally in passing yards per game, allowing just 124 yards per game.
Saturday’s UNC football game will be broadcast on the ACC Network.
