BOSTON (AP) — It’s been so long since No. 12 North Carolina played its last game that it almost feels like a new season to coach Mack Brown.

Three weeks after starting things off with a victory over Syracuse, the Tar Heels travel to Boston College on Saturday.

It’s the first time Carolina has had back-to-back open dates in the regular season since a campus polio outbreak in 1952.

After beating Syracuse 31-6, the Tar Heels had their Sept. 19 game against Charlotte canceled because of coronavirus concerns.

They couldn’t find a replacement in time for last week’s open date. Carolina receiver Beau Corrales says it’s felt like “a little mini-offseason.”
