Outlook: The Tar Heels start with a relatively easy game against Elon, an FCS opponent, before beginning conference play one week later on the road at Wake Forest.

The schedule sets UNC up for a fast start leading into its Oct. 6 home game against Virginia Tech, the first of back-to-back key divisional games for the Heels, who go on the road the next week to Miami.

Three of the last four games are at home, but the one road game in that stretch is difficult – at Virginia on a Thursday night, just five days after hosting Georgia Tech at Kenan Stadium.
