North Carolina 48 – Stanford 38
Stanford will run the ball effectively with Love and get on the board early. However, in the second half, UNC Mitch Trubisky will take over and score some key touchdowns to win the game in the fourth quarter. It will be a close one.

Stanford 34 – North Carolina 24
Bryce Love runs wild over a weak Tar Heel run defense and gets close to, but does not set, the Sun Bowl rushing record. Trubisky has a good game and goes pro after the game as expected, but goes out with a loss. Fans will leave the game saying “McCaffrey who?” after witnessing the emergence of future star Love!

Stanford 34 – Stanford 30
Stanford’s rushing attack will be too much for the Tar Heels’ run defense, who ranks 113th against the run. Love will pick up 150-plus yards during the game. Stanford’s defense, which is ranked 35th in the nation, will do just enough to squeeze out the victory against Trubiksy and his unit.
