CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina is looking for a 5-1 start when it faces Louisville on Saturday.
The Tar Heels are looking for their eighth straight nonconference victory and also have a chance to win their first four home games in 14 years. They're coming off a 35-20 win at East Carolina, though interim coach Everett Withers says his team didn't finish well after running out to a big first-half lead and "left a lot of meat on the bone."
Redshirt freshman tailback Giovani Bernard has three straight 100-yard rushing performances for the Tar Heels, who have outscored opponents 42-3 in the first quarter.
The Cardinals (2-2) are coming off a home loss to Marshall in a performance that included 11 penalties. Coach Charlie Strong called it "a step backward" for his program.
