UNC 'D' hopes to avenge 2012 no-show vs Georgia Tech

Sept. 16, 2013 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's defense doesn't want to get embarrassed by Georgia Tech again.

The Yellow Jackets lit them up for 68 points and 588 total yards last year in the highest-scoring game in ACC history, a 68-50 victory over UNC.

The Tar Heels (1-1) are determined to keep that from happening again this week when they meet in Atlanta.

North Carolina defensive tackle Tim Jackson missed that game with a knee injury. He said Monday that "seeing those points on the board, it hurt for me, so I know it hurt for those guys on the field."

Coach Larry Fedora says he hasn't had to remind his players about their myriad mistakes in all three phases of that game because "it doesn't disappear from your memory."
