3. North Carolina: The Tar Heels turned some heads at times last fall in Larry Fedora's first season in Chapel Hill. UNC showed that it could score points, and the Heels should do so again this fall behind quarterback Bryn Renner, receiver Quinshad Davis and tailbacks Romar Morris and A.J. Blue. The question is whether UNC will be strong enough along both lines. But this is a dangerous squad.
11. Duke: Fans of the Blue Devils should be excited about quarterback Anthony Boone, who takes over the offense. He is primed to excel under David Cutcliffe. The offense has plenty of talent, but can Duke's defense improve enough to take the program to another postseason game?
12. NC State: First-year head coach Dave Doeren and his staff will win sooner rather than later in Raleigh. But it may take some time before the up-tempo offense catches on no matter whether Pete Thomas or Manny Stocker wins the starting quarterback job. Twelve starters need to be replaced from 2012, so plenty of position battles will take place in preseason camp.
Yikes, there is much disparity between the teams in the triangle.
