Former Tar Heels star Harrison Barnes is excited about the whiteout:

North Carolina has been an up-and-down team this season. It's struggled against lesser teams, but it knocked off then-No. 3 Louisville and then-No. 1 Michigan State.

If the Tar Heels are on top of their game, the latest edition of this rivalry should be a thriller. The whiteout at the Dean Dome will be an awesome scene.
