North Carolina is pulling out all the stops trying to upset No. 10 Miami tonight in Chapel Hill, pushing a crowd blackout cleverly deemed “Zero Dark Thursday.” UNC will also wear black uniforms against Miami.
But the blackout isn’t just extending to the stands — UNC is ditching its famed baby blue for a new look tonight (hat tip to CollegeSpun):

The usual baby blue with white outlines is gone for tonight, replaced by the black with baby blue outlines. It’s a sharp look, but whether a 1-4 Tarheels squad that’s lost three in a row will look as good remains to be seen. Miami is 5-0 coming off a bye week and is a 10-point favorite tonight.
