• North Carolina and Miami have met every season since the Hurricanes joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2004. 

• UNC evened the all-time series at 11-all against Miami with a 62-26 victory in the regular-season finale last year in south Florida.

• Michael Carter and Javonte Williams set an NCAA record by combining for 544 yards rushing and Carolina finished with  778 yards – the most ever yielded by Miami and a Tar Heel record. Sam Howell threw for a score, ran for a score and caught a TD pass for the Heels. 

• Carolina is 6-3 at home against the Hurricanes, including a thrilling 28-25 win in 2019. 

• Perhaps the most famous meeting in the series at Kenan was UNC’s 31-28 upset of fourth-ranked Miami on Oct. 30, 2004. Conner Barth kicked a 42-yard field goal on the final play to register the highest ranked win in Carolina program history.


• Mack Brown is 2-0 against Miami with wins coming in 2019, a 28-25 victory in Chapel Hill, and last year’s 62-26 thumping in Miami Gardens, Fla. 


• The Tar Heel lost for the first time in four home outings, 35-25, to Florida State despite two touchdown passes and 108 yards rushing from quarterback Sam Howell. 

• Josh Downs, who hauled in a 33-yard pass for the game’s first touchdown, has caught at least one touchdown pass in ever game this season. 


• Carolina will be off next weekend before visiting  Notre Dame on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
