Newsome’s late TD catch puts North Carolina past Miami 28-25

North Carolina receiver Dazz Newsome falls out of bounds after getting a toe down for a touchdown catch ahead of Miami safety Gurvan Hall Jr. in the final minute of Saturday’s game at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. The catch sent the Tar Heels to a 2 Where do the 0-2 Hurricanes go from here? Fixing communication in the secondary is a good start

Redshirt Freshman Jarren Williams had a bounceback performance after a tough one against the Florida Gators going 30-39 for 309 yards and two touchdowns while transfer wide receiver KJ Osborn had a good outing with seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown but the 'Canes will want much more than stats.

The Hurricanes defense will also look to adjust as the secondary at times looked lost while the front couldn't seem to generate enough pressure to keep UNC quarterback Sam Howell off balance. Miami (FL) might not end up being that great of a team but this would be a big win for the Tar Heels.

Matson continued her outstanding season thus far, putting away the Tar Heel's first goal and assisting on three others within a five minute span in the second quarter.

Miami is going to be well-rested for this matchup after they had a bye in Week 1.

North Carolina hits the road for the first time in 2019 when it visits Wake Forest next Saturday. The extra time off will be a factor in getting the offensive line and special teams improved for Week 2. The 118 penalty yards did the offense no favors either, so that'll have to be addressed before Saturday as well. The Tar Heels will also be favored to go 4-0, which could set up a ranked match-up at home against the Clemson Tigers. In hopes of inspiring a defense that managed just 17 takeaways in 2018, Brown and new defensive backs coach Dre Bly unveiled the Tar Heels' own version of Miami's Turnover Chain - the Turnover Belt - and junior safety Myles Wolfolk was the first to don it, coming up with two fourth-quarter interceptions to seal the win over SC.

"For a team that's struggled over the last couple of years to win fourth-quarter games, I'm so happy to see them do it twice, two weeks in a row", Brown said.

Howell, the first true freshman quarterback to ever start the season opener for the Tar Heels, was handcuffed by conservative play calling in the first half against SC but was unleashed after falling behind by 11 points and ended up hitting 15-of-24 passes for 245 yards and the two late touchdowns.

Against Miami, the Tar Heels rushed for 100 yards on 35 carries.

While UNC eked out a win over SC despite being outplayed for the majority of the game, the opposite could probably be said about a Miami group that lost despite a solid defensive effort.

The North Carolina scoring outburst then subsided, as they had another scoreless period in the third. Last week, the Tar Heels overcame an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit.

So who wins North Carolina vs. Miami?

Look for Miami's defense to shutdown the true freshman Howell, while Williams delivers some big-time passes and Dallas runs for some impressive yards.
