North Carolina and Cameron Sexton are preparing for major changes this week with a return home to Kenan Stadium on Saturday. UNC will break from ACC play to take on unbeaten Connecticut in the first of consecutive out-of-conference games. Sexton, one of the key players in last Saturday's 28-24 win at Miami, will make his first start at quarterback since 2006, which was his redshirt-freshman season.

His high school coach suggested he transfer. His parents said they would support him if he did. And frankly, quarterback Cameron Sexton thought about leaving North Carolina. He thought about it a lot. Yet, despite the constant criticism during the 2006 season, of failing to win the starting job in 2007 and of dropping to third string before the 2008 season, the junior from Laurinburg remained a Tar Heel because in his heart, "I knew I would have a chance to get back out there."

Defensive lineman Jared McAdoo had never played football before his freshman season at Chapel Hill High. But ever since he got started, McAdoo has been a wonder to watch, Tigers coach Isaac Marsh said. Marsh spotted McAdoo, then a 6-foot-2, 260-pound basketball player, and told him that if he worked hard at football, he might win an athletic scholarship. That's exactly what happened.
