North Carolina didn't play all that well for long stretches of its 56-29 victory against Liberty but, nonetheless, the Tar Heels moved up to two places to No. 21 – tied with South Carolina – in the recently-released Associated Press top 25 poll.

The Tar Heels are the second-highest ACC team in the poll, behind No. 1 Florida State. Clemson is No. 23 and Louisville is No. 25. Beat San Diego State this weekend, and the Tar Heels could be a top-20 team headed into its game at East Carolina on Sept. 20.
