UNC improved to 5-1 (1-1) on the season with a 14-7 victory over the Louisville Cardinals in Chapel Hill. The victory may have helped notch another one in the wins column, but the fact is, this team was far from impressive against one of the declining programs in the country.
The game itself turned into a tale of two halves. Louisville, although entering halftime with zero points, absolutely dominated the first half, as the Tar Heels managed only 18 offensive snaps. UNC finished the first half with three punts and one turnover.
The second half turned out to fair a lot better for the hometown Tar Heels. No turnovers and two touchdowns turned out to be the difference, as the Heels held on 14-7.
