The Football Over-Unders for 2015: North Carolina
This article is another in a series of articles in which the Confidential opines regarding the over/under for football wins in 2015. We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.” We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under. If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too. The next team up: North Carolina. We are going with an over/under of 7.5 regular season wins.
- September 3 vs South Carolina (Charlotte, NC)
- September 12 vs North Carolina A&T
- September 19 vs Illinois
- September 26 vs Delaware
- October 3 @ Georgia Tech
- October 17 vs Wake Forest
- October 24 vs Virginia
- October 29 @ Pittsburgh
- November 7 vs Duke
- November 14 vs Miami
- November 21 @ Virginia Tech
- November 28 @ NC State
Likely losses: South Carolina, @Georgia Tech
Likely wins: NC A&T, Delaware, Wake Forest, Illinois or NC State
Summary: Like Boston College, North Carolina has two games against FCS opponents–North Carolina A&T and Delaware. In addition, UNC also plays all but one of its first seven games in the state of North Carolina and 9 overall in the state. Make no mistake, South Carolina will be tough, and Illinois is no pushover despite its recent futility. Still, with a Coastal slate and Atlantic games against Wake Forest and NC State, North Carolina has a path to the ACC Championship Game. That being said, the Confidential does not expect same. Ultimately, the Confidential goes with an over-under of 7.5 wins.
What do you think? Over or under? Let us know.
