    Last meeting: Nov. 30, 2013 in Chapel Hill, N.C. Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 to go to give the Blue Devils a 27-25 victory and a spot in their first ever ACC championship game. North Carolina had a shot to get into field-goal range to win the game, but Marquise Williams threw an interception at midfield to end the rally. Duke players carried coach David Cutcliffe off the field on their shoulders in celebration.

    The streak: Duke has won two straight. The last time the Blue Devils won more than two in a row in the series was when they took three straight between 1987-89. The longest Duke winning streak in the series is seven straight, between 1950-56.

    The prediction: The two are set to play Thursday night football Nov. 20 in Durham, N.C., with the expectation that the Coastal Division title will be up for grabs. The feeling this spring is that Duke and North Carolina have a chance to be the two best teams in the Coastal Division based on the players returning. At this point, the game remains a toss-up, so I reserve the right to change my pick come November. For now, I am leaning toward Duke based on its recent success and home-field advantage.
