It was a magical season for the North Carolina Tar Heels in 2015 with an 11-3 record and an ACC Coastal Division title. While the Tar Heels lost their last two games, it was still a season that fans will remember for a very long time to come. As the 2016 season arrives, expectations are sky high for North Carolina with a chance to make a similar run again. The offense scored 570 points last season or over 40 points a game. Can they make that happen for a second straight year? If it will, it has to be with a new quarterback and hoping that Elijah Hood can produce from the running back position again. The schedule includes a tough opener with Georgia and a trip to Florida State but not too many other road bumps.
