North Carolina's defense has been on the field an average of 37:04 per game, third-most in the country, and last week they were on the field for more than 41 minutes. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said, speaking generally, losing time of possession the week prior could have "huge" implications for that next week of practice and game. The Seminoles hold the ball an average of 36:19, fifth-best nationally.

Florida State's defense is struggling right now as it ranks 108th in points per game. The group is struggling against uptempo offenses, and they will play another Saturday against North Carolina. Coach Jimbo Fisher said the key is making a stop on first down to stunt the offensive rhythm.

On North Carolina's final drive to beat Pitt, QB Mitch Trubisky converted three throws on fourth-and-6 or longer. Since at least 2004, no other FBS QB has converted more such throws in the fourth quarter of a one-possession game in an entire season, let alone a single drive.

Ryan Switzer is one punt return TD shy of matching the NCAA career record. He had one called back today on a hold -- his third called back by a flag. "I don't even care if I get the record now," he said. "I'm just tired of seeing flags on the ground."
