UNC football sits at 3-3 on the season and travels to Blacksburg to face off against Virginia Tech after a bye week.
After losing three straight games, Carolina rebounded with a win over Georgia Tech to move to .500 and within three games of bowl eligibility. The Tar Heels are also currently a 3 1/2 point favorite over the Hokies on the road.
Lane Stadium in Blacksburg is one of the toughest atmospheres in college football. Can the Tar Heels steal a win and move one step closer to returning to bowl season?
Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. from Lane Stadium in Blacksburg.

What if I don’t have cable?
A live stream will be available on ESPN’s digital platforms through the ACC Network.
Additionally, several cord-cutting options carry the new ACC Network.
YouTube TV prices at $50/month and carries all of ESPN’s channels (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.) as well as the ACC Network. YouTube TV does not offer NFL Network or NFL Red Zone for pro sports fans.
Playstation Vue prices out similarly at $50/month and carries ESPN and the ACC Network. Vue also carries NFL Network and NFL Red Zone. A key note here: you don’t need to own a Playstation 4 to use Playstation Vue.
Hulu TV goes for $45/month and includes all ESPN channels, but does not carry MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network or NFL Red Zone.
Sling TV is the cheapest at $25/month, but includes the fewest channels. Make sure to avoid Sling Blue, as that package does not carry ESPN.
