North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech Prediction

I’m on North Carolina here. The Tar Heels have simply ran through everyone they’ve played in ACC competition aside from Florida State who just appears to be a thorn in the side of the Tar Heels. Georgia Tech’s lost by a lot against much less this season and I don’t see the Yellow Jackets springing the upset here. Give me North Carolina.
