North Carolina is looking for some help for a repeat appearance in the ACC Championship Game, but the Tar Heels first order of business is to win their three remaining conference games so they can gain the advantage should Virginia Tech stumble in any of its three remaining ACC contests. Michal Neuvirth Jersey .That starts Saturday when the 18th-ranked Tar Heels (6-2, 4-1 ACC) host Georgia Tech (5-3, 2-3) at 12:30 p.m. ET (ACC Network) at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C.North Carolina and Virginia Tech are currently tied at the top of the Coastal Division standings but the Hokies hold the tiebreaker by virtue of their 34-3 beat-down of the Tar Heels on a dark and stormy afternoon brought on by Hurricane Matthew.The Hokies lost the next week at Syracuse, but have since beaten Miami and Pittsburgh to remain in control of the race. Virginia Tech travels to Duke this week and has games against Georgia Tech and Virginia left on its conference card along with a non-conference game against Notre Dame.Meanwhile, after the visit from the Yellow Jackets, North Carolina will be facing Duke on the road and North Carolina State at home among its remaining league foes with a non-conference affair against The Citadel, an FCS opponent, tucked in there at home.Of course, nothing should be taken for granted at this point of what has been a typically crazy college football season.Georgia Tech may be out of the division race but is showing some signs of life with wins it its last two games. Quarterback Justin Thomas is rounding back into 2014 form for the Yellow Jackets.Over the last two weeks the senior has looked more like the guy in control of the nations top running attack instead of the one who was frustrated and flustered in 2015. Last week against Duke, Thomas rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns and threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-35 win for the Yellow Jackets.You have to look at Justin Thomas and say he might have had his finest hour, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. He played like a senior. Thats what I told him after the game.Thomas own coach was a bit more reserved.I thought he played very well, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. He made some plays.The Yellow Jackets also present the usual problems for opposing defenses with their triple-option, run-oriented attack. The offense demands a disciplined approach from a defense.Its a lot of attention to detail, because you dont see this offense a lot throughout the year, North Carolina cornerback Des Lawrence said. Its almost foreign to you, so you have to revamp your thinking of how youre going to attack this team.Its switching gears and being able to be mentally focused on what you have to do.The challenge comes at a time when the Tar Heels defense seems to be rounding into form as well. In the two games before last weeks break, North Carolina kept Miami at bay for a 20-13 win, and then two weeks ago it held Virginia to just 253 yards of total offense and 14 points in a three-touchdown win.Each and every week, we were able to find some improvement defensively, whether it was within a unit or in one aspect or not, we were able to find some of that and you were able to see them growing, Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora. I think theyre playing with some confidence, and their confidence has grown over the last couple of weeks, and theyre just playing much better football.And the offense keeps on rolling.Quarterback Mitch Trubisky has performed at an all-conference level. He has completed 71.2 percent of his passes with only two interceptions (both in the Virginia Tech loss) against 18 touchdown tosses.Even with the loss of Mack Hollins (four touchdown receptions) to a season-ending knee injury, the receiving corps is deep. Ryan Switzer has 66 catches for 678 yards, Bug Howard has 36 for 538 and Austin Proehl 27 for 378.Elijah Hood also is back to give the running game a jolt. He rushed for 107 yards against Virginia in his second game back from an injury that had cost him half of one game and all of another. Chris Conner Jersey . Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. side, put it all into perspective. "We know whos in charge," he said.

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. ELMONT, N.Y. -- Theory made a successful return to the races Saturday, winning the Grade 3, $200,000 Futurity at Belmont Park by 3-1/2 lengths in a performance that could propel him to the Breeders Cup Juvenile in three weeks at Santa Anita.Making his first start since winning his debut at Saratoga on July 30, Theory, the 1-5 favorite, chased the pacesetting Moves Like Ali through a quarter-mile in 22.62 seconds, a half in 45.35, and five-eighths in 57.40 before switching leads and taking over inside the eighth pole.Theory ($2.70) widened his advantage in the final sixteenth while covering six furlongs in 1:09.91. He wasnt done yet, as he galloped out another quarter of a mile under Javier Castellano.He galloped out steady and strong; thats what made me more excited. When you ask him, he responded, Castellano said.Trainer Todd Pletcher said the performance gives him and owners WinStar Farm and the China Horse Club plenty of options for the fall, including the Breeders Cup Juvenile on Nov. 5 at Santa Anita. That would mean stretching out from six furlongs to 1-1/16 miles around two turns.With the way he ran, the way he galloped out, and the way he came back, we have to have that discussion, Pletcher said.Theory was an impressive 5-1/2-length winner at Saratoga on July 30 and was pointing to the Grade 1 Hopeful on Sept 3. In late August, Plettcher wasnt happy with the way Theory was training, and the colt was eventually sent back to WinStar Farm. Ron Hextall Jersey. The horse was evaluated, and the only issue was a foot bruise.He was sent back to Pletcher in about two weeks, and the horse breezed four times leading up to this.In his debut, Theory won on the lead. On Saturday, he showed the ability to stalk, pounce, and finish.Hes a very good-minded horse, hes got a great disposition, hes not headstrong in any way; I anticipated he would rate fine and wasnt surprised that he did, Pletcher said.Star Empire rallied for second in the Futurity, a length ahead of Moves Like Ali. The Walk, who stumbled at the break, and Reckling completed the order of finish.Pletcher said he did not ask Castellano for such a lengthy gallop-out.He actually galloped out further than I probably would have told Javier to gallop out, but he hasnt run in a while, Pletcher said. The way he ran today, the way he finished puts us in a position where weve got a lot of options.If his connections decide to skip the Breeders Cup, Theory could be pointed to the Nashua, a one-turn mile at Aqueduct on Nov. 4, or the Kentucky Jockey Club, a two-turn, 1-1/16-mile race at Churchill Downs on Nov. 26.
