North Carolina faces Miami on Saturday, December 12th at Hard Rock Stadium for an NCAA football ACC matchup.
North Carolina is coming off a 49-9 win over Western Carolina in Week 14 of the college football season on December 5th. North Carolina was able to take the easy win over the FCS opponent in Week 14, but will now have to face an extremely tough Miami team in Week 15. North Carolina on the year is 7-3 overall and 6-3 in ACC play this season under coach Mack Brown. North Carolina scores 41.1 points per game, as the Tar Heels' offense has been off the charts this season. North Carolina earns 534.5 total yards of offense per contest, which is also an incredible feat. North Carolina's defense is what has stopped North Carolina from taking that next step in competitiveness in the ACC. North Carolina allows 28.6 points per game and concedes 404.0 total yards of offense per contest as well.
Miami is coming off an absolute blowout win over Duke by the final score of 48-0 in Week 14 on December 5th. Miami has now won five straight games and sits at 8-1 overall and 7-1 in ACC conference play. Miami's only loss of the season came against Trevor Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers on the road. Miami is ranked #10 in the nation and rightly so, the Hurricanes have had a great season. Miami scores 34.9 points per game and earns 445.8 total yards per contest as well. Miami allows 22.0 points per game and concedes 366.2 total yards of offense per contest as well. Miami will look to win its last two games and reach 10 wins for the first time since 2017.
Miami is a 4-point favorite and the total is set at 63.5. I will take Miami in this one, as I think Miami has the better all-around team. North Carolina should be able to put up a fight for a while, but in the end, I like Miami by a touchdown.
