Remember this pic? Yeah, me too. Gross. Three years ago #3 Miami strutted into Chapel Hill a two-digit favorite and fell 31-28 to the Tar Heels on a last-second kick by Spicolli, a.k.a. freshman Connor Barth.
Miami beat North Carolina the following two seasons, but due to scheduling both games were at the Orange Bowl. This year, it’s back to the scene of one of the more embarrassing Hurricane losses in recent memory. While this isn’t a “revenge” game, per se – it’s a statement game. Partially because of the 2004 loss, but also due to the Canes recent ACC road record.
Miami went 0-3 on the road in conference play last year and hasn’t won an ACC road game since Wake Forest in 2005.
More on this match up coming Friday. Stay tuned.
