UNC football vs. Georgia Tech in ACC matchup in Atlanta

Follow along live as the North Carolina football team takes on Georgia Tech in an ACC matchup:

ATLANTA — Sam Howell under fire and North Carolina engulfed by trouble.

Consider it a recipe for disaster and déjà vu all over again.

Georgia Tech manhandled the No. 21 Tar Heels 45-22 on Saturday night in Atlantic Coast Conference football at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, another wreck on the road for North Carolina.

Jeff Sims supplied a spark when the Yellow Jackets inserted him at quarterback to replace starter Jordan Yates. Sims accounted for 240 total yards and four touchdowns.

But this became an unwanted sequel to the Tar Heels’ season opener earlier this month at Virginia Tech, when the Hokies swarmed Howell, the North Carolina star quarterback, for six sacks and three interceptions.
