Newsome’s late TD catch puts North Carolina past Miami 28-25

North Carolina receiver Dazz Newsome falls out of bounds after getting a toe down for a touchdown catch ahead of Miami safety Gurvan Hall Jr. in the final minute of Saturday’s game at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. The catch sent the Tar Heels to a 2

The offensive line remains a huge trouble spot, as it allowed the Gators to tee off on Miami's young quarterback, but it did have some success opening holes for a ground game that figures to be productive with DeeJay Dallas (94 yards, TD) leading the way.

General view of the game between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Illinois Fighting Illini at Kenan Stadium on September 19, 2015 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Redshirt Freshman Jarren Williams had a bounceback performance after a tough one against the Florida Gators going 30-39 for 309 yards and two touchdowns while transfer wide receiver KJ Osborn had a good outing with seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown but the 'Canes will want much more than stats. True freshman quarter Sam Howell was excellent in the win.

Miami even had a chance to tie the game and send it to overtime.

North Carolina hits the road for the first time in 2019 when it visits Wake Forest next Saturday.

Saturday night's matchup will reveal how well either team did in fixing those concerns in a key early matchup in their Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division race. They committed 14 penalties for 118 yards in Week 0 and Williams was sacked 10 times.

The Hurricanes will be fresher than the Tar Heels and will benefit from having two weeks to improve their mistakes from Week 0.

Howell, the first true freshman quarterback to ever start the season opener for the Tar Heels, was handcuffed by conservative play calling in the first half against SC but was unleashed after falling behind by 11 points and ended up hitting 15-of-24 passes for 245 yards and the two late touchdowns. If they are blown out, then our expectations for this team will have to come down, as it would prove that the win over SC was just the Gamecocks being bad.

Howell threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns for the Tar Heels (2-0, 1-0).

Miami (FL) is an incredibly talented team and will give the Tar Heels a run for their money in Chapel Hill.

While UNC eked out a win over SC despite being outplayed for the majority of the game, the opposite could probably be said about a Miami group that lost despite a solid defensive effort.

The Tar Heels' running game, their bread and butter, was not very good on Saturday.

The North Carolina scoring outburst then subsided, as they had another scoreless period in the third. I'm not a big fan of moral victories, but if the Tar Heels lose by a field goal late, then it will be a moral victory for UNC and another signal that they are moving in the right direction under Mack Brown. In a span of less than 10 minutes, North Carolina tallied almost all of its six goals.
