Heading into Fall Break without a clue of how North Carolina athletics have been doing? Fear not – here's a rundown of the seasons so far for every UNC fall sports team.
Led by first-year quarterback Sam Howell, the UNC football team is sitting at 3-3 with a 2-1 mark in the ACC. The Tar Heels have recorded wins over South Carolina, Miami and Georgia Tech, and were a 2-point conversion away from an upset win over then-No. 1 Clemson on September 28.
This Saturday, North Carolina will travel to Blacksburg and take on Virginia Tech at 3:30 p.m. The Tar Heels are still very much in control of their ACC Coastal Division destiny, with home bouts against Duke and Virginia coming on October 26 and November 2, respectively.
The UNC field hockey team has won 35 straight games dating back to last year and is looking to complete a second straight perfect season. In 2019, the Tar Heels have recorded wins over Duke, Virginia, Louisville, Syracuse, Princeton and Iowa, all currently ranked in the top 10, while sophomore Erin Matson has a team-leading 20 goals this season.
Senior midfielder Yentl Leemans leads the team in assists with 11, while Catherine Hayden is second on the team in points with 25.
One year removed from a 1-0 loss to Florida State in the national championship, the UNC women's soccer team has ripped off a 12-1-1 start to the 2019 season, with the only blemishes coming in a September 15 loss to Arkansas, 2-0, and a scoreless tie at Duke on October 10.
