CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's midseason breather just got a whole lot more significant.
It wasn't long ago that the Tar Heels figured their glorified exhibition Saturday against Georgia Southern would give them an opportunity to pad some stats and keep themselves flying high in the polls entering the heart of Atlantic Coast Conference play.
But after consecutive league losses in which the offense was, well, offensive, they're approaching this as their last chance to figure out what exactly has gone wrong.
The main thing on the line for North Carolina's second matchup with a Football Championship Subdivision member is self-esteem. The Tar Heels are coming off consecutive losses to Georgia Tech and Virginia.
