Howell set North Carolina single-game records with 550 passing yards, six passing touchdowns and seven total TDs against Wake Forest on Nov. 14. Howell has thrown a touchdown pass in all 25 games he's played as a Tar Heel, the longest active streak in the nation. He has also thrown multiple TD passes in 21 of the 25 games.

Another returning weapon is sophomore wide receiver Khafre Brown, who appeared in all 12 games a year ago, making two starts. He caught 15 passes for 337 yards and two touchdowns, averaging a team-leading 22.5 yards per reception. He made his first career start in the season opener against Syracuse and responded with three catches for 35 yards. He scored his first career receiving touchdown, a 24-yarder, at Boston College on Oct. 3.

Why Virginia Tech can cover

Despite that, the Tar Heels are not a lock to cover the North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech spread. That's because the Hokies return a big portion of their offense from a year ago. Among those is junior quarterback Braxton Burmeister, who led Virginia Tech to a 3-1 record in games he started in 2020. He completed 48 of 84 passes (57.1 percent) for 687 yards, two touchdowns and one interception for a 131.3 rating. In the regular-season finale against Virginia, he completed 15 of 22 passes (68.2 percent) for 212 yards and one touchdown. He also carried seven times for 36 yards.

All five of the Hokies' top receivers are also back, including sophomore Tayvion Robinson, who led the team with 38 receptions for 592 yards (15.6 average) and three touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 48 yards (9.6 average). In last year's loss to the Tar Heels, Robinson caught four passes for 45 yards and a score. He had his best game against Virginia, when he caught five passes for 98 yards (19.6 average) and one touchdown.
