No. 10 Miami brings 'bunker mentality' to UNC game

By JOEDY McCREARY
AP Sports Writer

Al Golden isn't getting caught up in Miami's first top-10 ranking in four years.

One bad game, and it could vanish in an instant.

The 10th-ranked Hurricanes debut their highest ranking since 2009 on Thursday night in Chapel Hill, N.C., when they visit a North Carolina team that has floundered in Larry Fedora's second season.

Golden says Miami (5-0, 1-0 ACC) is "0-0 going into this game" and that "we have to continue to have that bunker mentality for the rest of the year."

The Hurricanes are one of three unbeatens in the league. No other conference has more than two.

The Tar Heels (1-4, 0-2) have struggled to run and to stop anyone during their three-game losing streak.
