UNC will have to be ready for Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who completed 30 of 39 passes for a career-high 344 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-7 win over Missouri State. Against Wake Forest this past weekend, UNC allowed quarterback Tanner Price to throw for a career-high 327 yards and couldn’t make a stop on the Deacs’ 93-yard, game-winning scoring drive.
