North Carolina hangs on for 28-25 win against Hurricanes

A general view of UNC's football stadium

South Carolina, but it won't be that easy against a strong Miami defensive line.

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.

The Hurricanes did find a groove however to end the first half as Jarren Williams led Miami down the field and finished the drive off with a 6 yard KJ Osborn touchdown catch with just 25 seconds until halftime. That capped a stunning 75-yard march that included him hitting Rontavius Groves for 20 yards on a fourth-and-17 to keep the drive alive, which came only minutes after the Tar Heels had surrendered the lead on a late Miami touchdown.

Rameses, the North Carolina Tar Heels mascot, is seen as they take on the Iona Gaels during the first half of the game in the first round of the 2019 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Nationwide Arena on March 22, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio.

Howell completed 16 of 24 passes for 274 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown throw to Dyami Brown as part of UNC's 17-3 game-opening burst. There will be plenty of exciting games going on throughout the weekend. He didn't turn the ball over and was sacked four times.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns.

The Hurricanes played Florida in college football week "zero". After a slow start in the first quarter vs. Florida, Miami's defense showed their potential, forcing three turnovers in the remaining three quarters.

Things were looking up for Miami after a 10-point second quarter, but that lead would fizzle away before giving way to a 24-20 Florida victory on a Feleipe Franks touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter. Miami with one last chance on a Bubba Baxa 49 yard field goal to tie the game misses wide left and Mack Brown and the Tar Heels find themselves 2-0 while Manny Diaz and the Hurricanes fall to 0-2. Javonte Williams and Michael Carter led a rushing attack that piled up 238 yards. All these kinks can be worked out next week as Miami faces off against Bethune-Cookman at 4:00PM/EST on ACC Network.

Miami is going to be well-rested for this matchup after they had a bye in Week 1.

The Hurricanes are trying to avoid the program's first 0-2 start since falling to Colorado and Florida State in 1978. But for now, Brown can break out his dancing shoes and enjoy another victory as an underdog.
