Non-Conference Games: Georgia, at Illinois, James Madison, The Citadel

Games vs. the Atlantic: at Florida State, NC State

5 Keys To The Schedule

– Okay, Tar Heels. Are you ready to show that 2015 was just the start of something big? Here’s your chance with Georgia to open the season and a trip to Illinois to follow. However, it might turn into a bit of a problem in the long run with two FCS games against James Madison and The Citadel.

– Going to Florida State stinks, but the other Atlantic game should be manageable at home against NC State.

– There’s a ton of travelling in the middle of the season with four road games in a stretch of six, and three in a four game run. However, there’s a week off after going on the road to deal with Miami and Virginia.

– It’s not an awful finishing kick, not leaving the greater Chapel Hill metropolitan area from October 22nd on. The lone road game in November is at Duke.

– WATCH OUT FOR … at Virginia. It comes after the road game at Miami and before the bye week. This could come just when the team needs a break the most.
