College Football Week 13: North Carolina Tar Heels Vs. Duke Blue Devils Preview

Consider it Hate Week’s pre-dessert palate cleanser. It’s the rivalry game nobody cares about, besides both Duke Blue Devils football fans. Duke has beaten the North Carolina Tar Heels once since 1989, and I can’t believe I have to come up with two more paragraphs here.

With Duke QB Sean Renfree’s strong play, these teams aren’t all that far apart on offense. But Duke’s defense is just about the worst of any BCS conference team, giving up 6.4 yards per play. Only like 30 words to go!

Considering Carolina lost just about an entire All-ACC defense before the season started, a winning season and .500 conference record would be a respectable showing for the last season in Tar Heels football history. #exaggeration

Hey, at least Danny Kannel is pumped:
