CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina spent its off week working on correcting all the little mistakes that had plagued the Tar Heels through the first six games.
Coach Butch Davis says the Tar Heels (4-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) used the time following the Georgia Southern victory to do what he described as self-scouting. Much of that focus had to be on the offense, which has struggled to put points on the board and move the football on the ground.
Quarterback T.J. Yates says the offense had one of its best practices of the year Sunday and is eager to face Florida State on Thursday night.
The Tar Heels also announced Monday that freshmen A.J. Blue and Jamal Womble are lost for the season with injuries. Both players had surgery Friday.
