I'm really torn on this one. I'm usually overly optimistic about the Gophers, but all the hoopla around UNC and Maye makes me think they're a juggernaut that will thrash the 6 point spread over the Gophs. The Gophs inconsistent offense hasn't helped that notion. On the other hand, UNC is defensively giving up almost 200 yards per game MORE THAN THE GOPHERS. The Tar Heel defense is terrible.
Defense wins it again. Gives up a few long touchdown drives because Drake Maye, but also Nubin gets another pick (pressure by Striggow) to set up an AK to DJ touchdown in the corner. Another touchdown comes off a 23-yard DTII run. We score field goals on two drives that should be touchdowns because the red zone struggles are real.
