Hokies Look To Rebound This Year Vs. Tar Heels

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech is drawing from last year's loss to North Carolina to keep it from happening again.

The Hokies (4-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) finished 7-6 a year ago, and when they face the Tar Heels Saturday, the 48-34 loss that highlighted how dismal Virginia Tech's season was will be fresh in their minds.

The Tar Heels (1-3, 0-1) ran for 339 yards, and the Hokies managed just 40.

Cornerback Brandon Facyson says the Hokies have learned that taking care of little things goes a long way.

North Carolina arrives at Lane Stadium trying to turn things around.

The Tar Heels gave up 603 yards last week in a 55-31 loss to East Carolina, prompting a players-only meeting.

Free safety Tre Boston says the team's intensity has picked up.
