North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech live stream

Wide receiver Cam Phillips, who is among the nation's best in catches (42), receiving yards (608) and receiving touchdowns (five), is expected back after suffering a right foot sprain in the first quarter of Tech's last game at Boston College on October 7.

"Special teams wise, I think we've been very solid, we've been good in some areas, but we've just been OK, and that's not who we are". 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. The Tar Heels must focus on converting on third downs to contend with a red-hot Virginia Tech team.

Tech knocked off Boston College 23-10 two weeks ago - the Hokies were off last week - but it didn't play particularly well, committing too many penalties and giving up too many sacks. This game's over/under comes in at a combined 52.5 points.

Besides two technically-speaking 0-4 seasons in the ACC in 2008 and '09 - the Tar Heels vacated four league wins each season because of NCAA violations, so that's how it appears in the record books - UNC hasn't gone winless in league play since 1989, when Mack Brown went 1-10 overall in his second season at Chapel Hill.

"You don't have to like it", said Carolina coach Larry Fedora, discussing his team's struggles. "So I really just laid down and watched TV". I think there's been some games where our defense has put us in a position to win the football game and offensively we haven't been able to get it done.

It's why head coach Justin Fuente isn't exactly satisfied with where his team's at right now, especially relative to the rest of the division. Virginia Tech ranks seventh in points allowed, surrendering just 13.7 per contest. "That's still exciting that we can continue to grow and develop as a unit". "I think it's going to be tough, hard grind for anyone to make it all the way through". Tailback Michael Carter, a freshman, made his first career start and rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns against Virginia last Saturday. Harris responded by going 7-for-18 for only 46 yards and three interceptions in a 20-14 loss to UVa last week. Chazz Surratt started the previous five games.

Last week, with Virginia Tech on an open date, senior linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka got a pedicure.

North Carolina has struggled on offense in the wake of the departure of standout quarterback Mitch Trubisky, now the starter for the Chicago Bears.

North Carolina has lost 16 players to season-ending injuries, including linebacker Andre Smith and wide receiver Austin Proehl.

"The one thing we can not do is ever be satisfied", Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster said. He's also made 11 of 17 field goals, the longest from 50 yards.

RECORD BREAKERS: Virginia Tech wide receiver Cam Phillips, if he is sufficiently recovered from a sprained foot, needs four receptions to supplant Isaiah Ford (210) as the Hokies career receptions leader.
