Miami - North Carolina Prediction: Tar Heels Have Been Thorn in Hurricanes Side

Miami and UNC kick off the the ACC Coastal race as the top four contenders start playing each other over the next month.

The Heels have been a thorn in Randy Shannon's side winning the last three games and derailing Miami's division title hopes each time.

After an 0-2 start, Butch Davis' team has righted the ship it appears winning four straight and scoring 36 points per game in their last three.

Miami had a disastrous performance their last time at home against rival FSU and wasn't stellar last week against Duke either.

The Hurricanes are favored by six points, yet I see UNC having a very good chance to win outright.

Maligned before the season, Tar Heel QB TJ Yates is having a better season than his counterpart Jacory Harris. Yates has thrown for nearly 1,500 yards with 11 touchdowns and just one interception while Harris has thrown nine picks.

I see an improving UNC team who has played like they are past the controversy surrounding their program to play solid football as of late.

Harris' poor decision making is stalling a talented Miami offense and I think that trend will continue on Saturday.

North Carolina 24 Miami 21
