North Carolina Tar Heels (2-0) vs Virginia Tech Hokies (2-0)
Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 12:00 pm
*3 Star Play Over* The North Carolina Tar Heels offense hasn't been very good so far this year, but this offense has too much talent to struggle all season. Sam Howell is one of the better quarterbacks in the nation. He has a good offensive line and very good receivers around him as well.
Virginia Tech's running game has really impressed me so far this year. The Hokies are averaging a whopping 7.01 ypc through their first two games. I certainly don't expect anything like that in this game, but the Hokies offensive line has been great in run blocking. North Carolina's defense hasn't been tested by a team that has any semblance of a running game.
There is some rain in the forecast for this one which has made the total go down a few points, but the projected wind is 4 mph. Rain without wind is a neutral for the total.
There are numerous injuries and COVID related absences in the secondary for both teams. That could lead to some big plays for both teams.
Hendon Hooker is expected to play for Virginia Tech here, and he is their top option at quarterback.
Take the over.
