ATLANTA — After a back-and-forth affair in the first half, the North Carolina football team trails Georgia 14-10 in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta. Here's what to know from the first 30 minutes in Atlanta.
Where is Hood?
Much to the chagrin of Tar Heel fans, preseason All-ACC running back Elijah Hood touched the ball just seven times in the first half — with five of those coming in the final seven minutes of the half.
Hood busted a 32-yard gain on his third rush of the game, but Coach Larry Fedora has favored quarterback Mitch Trubisky and senior tailback T.J. Logan throughout the contest.
Hood has been productive in limited opportunities, but UNC might want to feature the junior back more often if it hopes to avoid shades of the South Carolina loss from 2015.
