Personnel notes

Sophomore tight end Michael Irvin II, who was suspended last game, is back and warming up.

Freshman running back Robert Burns, who has yet to play this season, is not here. He is headed toward a redshirt season.

Senior defensive end Chad Thomas (shoulder/arm), linebacker Michael Pinckney (chest), right guard Navaughn Donaldson (ankle), cornerback Dee Delaney (knee) — listed as probable on the injury report — receivers Mike Harley (ankle) and Ahmmon Richards (hamstring/ankle) are all  warming up.

Donaldson, who missed the last two games after spraining his right ankle against Florida State, was warming up as the second-team right guard, an indication he may come off the bench (or not play at all).

Fired up

Senior left tackle Kc McDermott raced out of the tunnel and jumped around and threw his arms up to the visiting section of fans. He’s got the juice today, as they say.

Uniform check

Miami is in white jerseys and orange pants. UNC is in all-navy and white helmets.

Weather report

Beautiful day here in the Triangle. Temperature at 11 a.m. is 61 degrees, with a high of 72 expected. Skies are clear. Humidity is 69 percent. A gentle breeze rolls through the pine trees behind the west side of Kenan Memorial Stadium.
