UNC Looks For Turnaround In 2nd Half Of Year

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina at least has a realistic chance to turn around the ACC's worst record during the back half of the season.

Among the final six opponents for the Tar Heels (1-5, 0-3) are an FCS team and five conference foes with a combined record of 17-15.

According to coach Larry Fedora, the turnaround has to start this week against Boston College (3-3, 1-2).

Fedora said Monday that "we're in a tough spot in our season with where we are" and the Tar Heels have to "circle the wagons."

The five teams that have beaten North Carolina are a combined 26-8 and include three nationally ranked teams: No. 20 South Carolina, No. 19 Virginia Tech and No. 7 Miami.
