    A win and the Tar Heels are bowl-eligible for a second consecutive year; a loss and their season is over.

    In order to pull off another upset of cataclysmic proportions, the Tar Heels will have to be able run the football, use up the clock and try to take the Hokie fans out of the game. And even all that might not be enough.

    But the time is now for four starting seniors on the UNC offensive line.

    Skip Seagraves, already in his sixth-year and Brian Chacos, who is seeking another year; along with Kyle Ralph and Steven Bell face the realistic possibility that their careers could come to an end this weekend. They didn't need any extra firing up this week in practice.

    "I expect their best game," John Bunting said. "I think they've played better in the second half in the season than they did in the first," Bunting said. "I think they've been real solid in the second half of the season. I think they've picked it up a notch and we're going to need it this week."
