avoid an early wreck

North Carolina plays LSU on open­ing Satur­day in the an­nual Ge­or­gia Dome kick­off game, billed as the “Day­tona 500 of col­lege foot­ball.’’ A lot of speed, yeah. Just don’t ex­pect much pass­ing. Ei­ther Davis or Les Miles will come out of this game with a dam­aged car. The Heels’ ACC as­pi­ra­tions — they are in the tougher Coastal Di­vi­sion — will be de­ter­mined by a four-week stretch (Oct. 23-Nov. 13) of road games at Mi­ami and Florida State and a home matchup against Vir­ginia Tech. Fas­ten your seat belts.
