The Tar Heel football team is the lone Tobacco Road school to appear in the Preseason AP Top 25 poll released earlier today. The Tar Heels are among four ACC schools to receive a spot in the rankings. Virginia Tech (No. 7), Georgia Tech (No. 15) and Florida State (No. 18) will each create road blocks for the Tobacco Road teams on the way to Tampa at the end of the season.
Among the schools receiving votes is NC State. With several tough ACC opponents on the schedule, the Wolfpack will have ample opportunities to crack the rankings.
Check back soon for previews of the opening games for each Tobacco Road team.
