Away: Miami Hurricanes
Miami’s offensive firepower revolves around their trio of wide receivers: Xavier Restrepo, Jacolby George, and Colbie Young. Together, they’ve accumulated a whopping 1,113 receiving yards this season, which amounts to an impressive 75.5% of Miami’s total yardage, totaling 1,474 yards.
Xavier Restrepo has been a standout player, ranking second in the ACC for receptions (36) and receiving yards per game (95.60). In their previous game against Georgia Tech, Restrepo displayed his skills with a career-high 12 catches for 123 yards.
When it comes to defense, Miami is an absolute force. They currently hold the top spot in the FBS for rushing defense, allowing a mere 58.2 yards per game. They’re also ranked 12th in scoring defense, conceding only 14.6 points per game, and sit at ninth in the nation for total defense, yielding just 268.4 yards per game.

On the flip side, the North Carolina Tar Heels are riding high, having scored 30 or more points in five of their opening games. Their offensive effectiveness is evident, with an average of 500.0 yards per game, ranking them ninth in the FBS.
Quarterback Drake Maye recently joined the ranks of T.J. Yates, Mitch Trubisky, and Sam Howell as one of the few Tar Heels to have three career 400+ yard passing games. WR Devontez Walker made a memorable debut against Syracuse last week, hauling in 6 passes for 43 yards.
