From: “The Path for Stanford to Beat North Carolina in the Sun Bowl without Christian McCaffrey

“UNC ranks 56 in total offense with 33.1 points a game and 442 yards of total offense a game. They lean heavily on the passing attack fueled by Mitch Trubisky, who is the 14th ranked quarterback in the nation with 3,468 yards and 28 touchdowns against only four picks. On the defensive side, UNC is weaker. Giving up 24.9 points a game with 419 total yards. Of those, 235.5 are rushing yards. Posing a tantalizing weakness for Stanford.”
