Chapel Hill, N.C. â€” North Carolina is only 12 days and nine practices away from its season-opening matchup with LSU in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. The primary benefit of returning 18 starters is that the first unit has remained virtually unchanged, and those few open spots have essentially already been secured.
â€œWeâ€™re pretty close, obviously,â€ UNC head coach Butch Davis told reporters before Mondayâ€™s practice when asked if his starting lineup was set. â€œI think that if we were playing Saturday, we have a pretty good idea as to who the starting 11 [would be] on both sides of the ball.â€
