We look at some key ACC games this weekend as UNC enjoy their bye

The 3-0 North Carolina Tar Heels are on a bye this week before a date with a winless Notre Dame awaiting them next weekend.

UNC has got off to a tremendous offensive start led by quarterback Drake Maye, averaging a sixth-best 51.3 points per game in the nation. Despite their offensive power, the lackluster defense has kept opponents in the game, allowing 37.7 points per game which is 115th in the nation.

He’s also become reliable at scrambling, with 42 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown on the season.

Despite not being ranked currently, FSU is a significant threat to the ACC, mainly if they can produce the way they did against LSU in their season opener. This game should be a breeze for the Seminoles, taking on the Cardinals, who just lost 31-7 to Syracuse.
