CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — The toughest part of North Carolina's schedule is behind the Tar Heels. Now they hope the wins start coming.
Coach Larry Fedora's last-place team looks for its first Atlantic Coast Conference victory when North Carolina (1-5, 0-3) plays host to Boston College on Saturday.
The Tar Heels have lost four straight with the last two coming against nationally ranked Coastal Division rivals Virginia Tech and Miami.
Things should ease up on them during the last six weeks of the season because the five remaining Bowl Subdivision opponents are a combined 17-15.
The Tar Heels will try to make it happen against BC (3-3, 1-2) — which has lost three of four but remains the only team to finish within two touchdowns of No. 3 Florida State.
