Mas­sachusetts at SOUTH FLORIDA GAME CAN­CELLED Vir­ginia over N CAROLINA by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Wow, what a dif­fer­ence a year makes! Last sea­son at this time, the Tar Heels rode into Char­lottesville as 10.5-point fa­vorites and spanked the Cava­liers, 35-14, up­ping their se­ries ad­van­tage to 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS since 2010. Now the Heel is on the other foot as the Cavs hit Chapel Hill as road fa­vorites. It ac­tu­ally makes sense as HC Larry Fe­dora’s strug­gling crew is 1-5 SUATS and ITS this sea­son, be­ing out­yarded by 98 YPG, while Bronco’s bunch (4-1) is No. 2 in the na­tion in red-zone de­fense and hasn’t lost a fum­ble all sea­son long. How­ever, that’s not enough to lay the points with a vis­i­tor that has two road wins since 2013 and hasn’t won in this build­ing since 2009. So de­spite the fact that Vir­ginia is a play within this week’s on page 3 – with the Cavs over­priced and the Tar Heels set to ‘mis­sion’ next sea­son – we’ll steal a page out of Thomas Paine’s clas­sic and use ‘Com­mon Sense’ to­day in Scott Sta­dium. By that we mean pass.
