Kirk Herbstreit makes Georgia vs. North Carolina prediction
ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit was asked about which team he likes in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic between Georgia and North Carolina, and his answer may surprise some:
@KirkHerbstreit Herby. Do you think UNC can have a better year than last? Who you got in Dawgs/Heels?

I like the Heels. I think they win week 1 https://t.co/jklRvX24xF

There you have it: he likes UNC to beat the Bulldogs in Atlanta.
It should be a very entertaining matchup, and we’ll learn a lot about both teams Week 1.
The Bulldogs have yet to name a starting quarterback, and the unknown health surrounding running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel certainly makes things a little cloudier for Georgia.
Will Georgia prove him wrong? Herbstreit’s picks have certainly been used as motivation before.
