#2 ND Set To Battle #25 UNC This Afternoon


No. 2 Notre Dame visits No. 25 North Carolina today in a key match-up in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Fighting Irish are unbeaten and have won 14 consecutive games dating to last season. Notre Dame is closing in on a spot in next month’s ACC championship game after beating then-No. 1 Clemson earlier this month.

UNC is trying to keep its hopes alive of reaching the ACC title game with two league losses.

The key match-up will be Notre Dame’s defense, which ranks among the nation’s best, trying to slow a UNC offense that averages more than 43 points.
