Gene Chizik's UNC Defense Must Respond

Tar Heel defensive coordinator talks improvements and expectations for the ACC opener.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The North Carolina defense lacked energy and consistency against James Madison. Gene Chizik says that will change for the ACC opener.

He expects to see a completely different side of his defensive squad on Saturday. 

Pittsburgh's jet sweep and dominant running back, James Conner, has UNC's attention in game preparations, but Chizik says he's been happy with the response and performance of the team in practice this week.
