2017 North Carolina Tar Heels Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The Tar Heels have no problems with home dates against Cal and Louisville – set the over/under on each game at around a bajillion – and gets by Georgia Tech on the road for a 5-0 September start. With three of the next four games at home, UNC goes 3-1 in the span – maybe losing at Virginia Tech or to Miami – and uses the week off to get by Pitt on the road. A win at NC State is enough to finish 10-2 and be off of the ACC Championship.

2017 North Carolina Tar Heels Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

UNC doesn’t win both home games to start – losing to Louisville would be a problem, and can’t get by Georgia Tech on the road. Worst of all, it’s another biff against Duke, only this time in Chapel Hill. The 2-3 start is bad enough, but a loss to Notre Dame brings on a full-blown panic. The team will be too good to finish with a losing season, but in a horrible year, it goes 6-6 with a rough second half, including a rivalry loss at NC State.
