Result:
WIN

North Carolina comes off an 8-4 season and has 10 returning starters on defense, including linebacker Tomon Fox, who is currently tied with Lawrence Taylor on the Tar Heels' career sack list with 21, fifth overall. North Carolina has great expectations this fall with a Heisman candidate, Sam Howell, returning at quarterback. However, the Tar Heels enter this game with several wide receivers either out or questionable. The posted total is inflated due to UNC's 56-45 win last year over the Hokies, who return seven on the defensive side. Virginia Tech lost five of its last seven games in 2020 and coach Justin Fuente is on the hot seat after not making a bowl game last season. The Hokies went UNDER five of their last eight games and averaged only 20.3 points their last four games. Braxton Burmeister is the starting QB for Virginia Tech after starting four games last season and is the only quarterback on the roster with starting experience at the Power 5 level. Take this matchup to stay UNDER the total.
