North Carolina has to play seven teams with first-year head coaches, including the opener against Georgia. Coach Larry Fedora said his staff watched six different schools to prepare for what Kirby Smart might bring to the Bulldogs. "It's chaos," Fedora said. "You're breaking down Pitt, you're breaking down Tennessee, you're breaking down Arkansas -- not including Virginia Tech for special teams. My comments to our guys: we may not see any of this, so when we get in this game, you have to be ready to change. You have to be able to adapt."

UNC CB Des Lawrence on playing Deshaun Watson: "One word to describe him is, he's a problem. He finds ways to make plays. Coming into the game, you say you've got him. Everybody's hollering about him, but we're going to show the world. No, he showed us. He got a lot of respect from me in that game. He's the best quarterback in the country."
