Pregame observations

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina running back Shaun Draughn was running around during warm-ups catching passes and taking hand-offs, despite a nagging ankle injury. He didn't look in pain, but that doesn't mean he's not. He went over to Anthony Elzy, who is expected to start, and gave him an encouraging shake on the shoulder pads.

There are no lineup changes for Virginia Tech. For UNC, backup defensive tackle Jared McAdoo will get his first career start at left defensive end, and freshman Jabari Price will start over Mywan Jackson at corner.
