CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina has bounced back from its midseason struggles to become bowl eligible for the second straight season. Now the Tar Heels have to go on the road for their final two games to determine where they'll end up in the postseason.
North Carolina (7-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won three straight games since blowing a big second-half lead in a home loss to Florida State last month. That includes a road win at Virginia Tech and Saturday's 33-24 win against then-No. 12 Miami, giving North Carolina five straight wins against ranked opponents.
The Tar Heels travel to Boston College this weekend, then to rival North Carolina State on Thanksgiving weekend.
Quarterback T.J. Yates says the Tar Heels are excited by the challenge of closing the season on the road.
