20. North Carolina
And who is this we find at the bottom of the top? The Tar Heels? It's true. The noted basketball power discovered the joys of winning football last season, going 6-4-1 after successive 1-10 seasons in coach Mack Brown's first two years. This season Carolina could further enhance the ACC's growing gridiron reputation. The only question mark is whether a year of experience has improved a shaky defensive secondary. The Heels are solid at linebacker, where Dwight Hollier led the ACC in tackles with 155, and at quarterback, where Chuckie Burnette, who had a fine spring, should get stiff competition from last year's starter, Todd Burnett, as well as from hotshots Mike Thomas, a junior college transfer, and Jason Stanicek, a true freshman from Park Forest, Ill.
