CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina never expected to be in this position.
The Tar Heels were considered dark horses to challenge for an Atlantic Coast Conference division title, but instead they have the worst record in the league.
And with games against resurgent Virginia Tech and No. 14 Miami ahead, they're in danger of dropping to 1-5.
Coach Larry Fedora said Monday he realizes "the task at hand" but he's "more focused on the Tar Heels than I am on Virginia Tech right now."
UNC (1-3, 0-1 ACC) is coming off one of its worst losses in a while - a 55-31 thumping against East Carolina in which the Tar Heels allowed 603 total yards.
They'll try to turn their season around in Blacksburg - where their only win since 1930 was vacated.
