CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina keeps coming up with big wins on the road -- and that has the No. 22 Tar Heels in strong position to win their Atlantic Coast Conference division again.Entering Saturdays trip to Virginia, the Tar Heels have won three road games this season -- two against ranked Florida State and Miami teams -- and havent lost a game on an opponents home field since 2014. That eight-game run in true road games is tied for fourth-longest in the country.Even quarterback Mitch Trubisky doesnt have a clear way to explain it.I think its really more of an in-the-moment thing, because you cant prepare for the environment down at Miami or at Florida State or at Virginia until youre actually there in the week, he said Monday. And I think when youre in that moment, either you respond to it and you rise to the occasion or you dont.The Tar Heels (5-2, 3-1 ACC) have done that so far. They won big at Illinois in Week 2, edged then-No. 12 Florida State in Tallahassee on a last-play 54-yard field goal on Oct. 1 and then won at then-No. 16 Miami 20-13 over the weekend.UNC hasnt lost on an opponents home field since falling at Miami in November 2014, though the Tar Heels lost to Georgia in Atlanta to open this season in front of a largely pro-Bulldogs crowd.Still, the eight-game streak in true road games is tied for fourth in the country with No. 4 Clemson and No. 16 Oklahoma, trailing No. 2 Ohio State (20), top-ranked Alabama (10) and Iowa (nine).Its also UNCs longest as a member of the ACC, founded in 1953.Coach Larry Fedora, who repeatedly talks about the importance of treating every game the same, pointed to the way his team has handled practices leading up to road trips.The preparations been very consistent, Fedora said. They understand what it takes to be successful. ... We knew we were going to have to be good on the road, if we were going to accomplish the goals that we wanted to. It was something that we talked about in the very first team meeting. And so I think theyre doing that to this point.The Tar Heels are now sitting atop a crowded and messy-once-again Coastal Division race with head-to-head tiebreakers against contenders Pittsburgh and Miami. Their Oct. 8 home loss to Virginia Tech (4-2, 2-1) played in a heavy downpour from Hurricane Matthew means the Tar Heels will need the Hokies to lose again to put them back in control of their own destiny in the division.UNC is trying to become the Coastals first repeat winner since the Hokies did it in 2010 and 2011.The challenge did get tougher in the Miami win. The team said Monday that top deep threat Mack Hollins is lost for the season to a broken right collarbone, which required surgery Sunday. Hollins led the country last year by averaging 24.8 yards per catch, and his 20 career TD catches rank third in school history.Perhaps more importantly, he was a three-time special teams captain playing on punt and kickoff returns.Well miss what he brings to us on offense, Fedora said. But probably more than anything, his leadership. And hopefully well be able to keep him still involved and help him continue to lead this football team.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap and the APs college football site at http://collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Adidas NHL Jerseys . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others.

Authentic Adidas NHL Gear . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. MIAMI -- A day after fans said goodbye, family members and friends of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez said their last formal farewell at a private funeral Mass on Thursday at St. Brendan Catholic Church in Miami.Fernandez, 24, and two friends were killed in a boat crash off South Beach early Sunday.I think the most important thing is that he brought this community together around our game in a way that we havent seen with an individual player in a very long time,?MLB commissioner Rob Manfred told ESPNs Pedro Gomez outside the Mass.Obviously, this is a tremendous loss for Joses family, for the Marlins organization, but really for all of baseball. He was that important to the game. He had an infectious way about him ... the way he played the game on the field, and I think people found that enthusiasm to be just really appealing.About 300 mourners attended Thursdays afternoon service, including Manfred, busloads of current and former Marlins players, Marlins executives Tony Perez and Andre Dawson and former Marlins manager Jack McKeon.?We werent supposed to be here today, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria said.Its very difficult to understand this, the Rev. Jose Alvarez said. Why so young -- someone with such bright promise?The bilingual service lasted more than two hours, and much of the time was spent celebrating Fernandezs dynamic personality, rather than his exploits as the Marlins precocious ace.The bulletin for the Mass included three photos of Fernandez, and each captured his familiar grin.His magnetic smile could light up a ballpark, Loria said. He set the standard for making baseball fun.Pallbearers wore black Fernandez jerseys as they carried his casket, while Marlins manager Don Mattingly and third baseman Martin Prado read Scripture. The team has grieved in public and offered moving tributes to Fernandez while finishing out the final six games of the season, which ends Sunday.During the passing of the peace, players lined up to hug and console Fernandezs mother and grandmother, seated in the front row. He also left behind a girlfriend, who is pregnant with their child.He was a young man who was larger than life -- a good, kind-hearted, loving young man who loved life, who loved people, Alvarez said in his homily. He was a guy of enormous dimensions. Jose was too good for this league. Hes going to a higher league.Alvarez said Fernandez is already at work in heaven, noting the improbable homer hit by 170-pound Dee Gordon leading off the first inning of the Marlins emotional first game after the boat crash.A skinny little guy like that is not supposed to hit the ball that far, Alvarez said. Jose is busy, I guarantee you. Jose is still pitching. ... Jose, well never forget you. We ask that you never forget us.Fernandez and his mother defected from Cuba by boat oon his fourth try when he was 15.ddddddddddddHe broke into the majors with Miami in 2013 and quickly became a local celebrity, thanks to his rare combination of charisma and talent, along with a backstory that resonated in South Floridas Cuban community.Fernandez was the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year and a two-time All-Star, but his proudest moment came when he bought his mother a house, said his agent, Scott Boras.He was crying, said Boras, crying himself. He said, Can you believe it?! I bought my mother a home in the United States!Boras also recalled a conversation with Fernandez after he had reconstructive elbow surgery, which sidelined him for 14 months in 2014-15.His first words in the recovery room to me were, You wait. Im going to be the best there is, Boras recalled.The hard-throwing right-hander went 38-17 in 76 starts over four major league seasons, but glittering statistics werent the reason Loria said Fernandez will never be replaced or forgotten.I prefer not to think of this tragedy as the end of his life, Loria said, but rather as the beginning of the legend.After the service, Marlins players were set to fly to Washington, D.C., to play the Nationals in their final series of the 2016 season.On Wednesday, Loria, Mattingly, hitting coach Barry Bonds and players including Ozuna?and Giancarlo Stanton wore white T-shirts emblazoned with Fernandezs image and the letters RIP as they slowly walked the hearse away from Marlins Park in Miamis Little Havana neighborhood. Many in the crowd of about 1,000 chanted Jose! Jose! and some waved Cuban flags in honor of Fernandezs heritage.Hundreds of fans streamed into St. Brendans Catholic Church later Wednesday for a public viewing, which was scheduled to last into the night. Many said they felt compelled to come, not only because of Fernandezs popularity as a player, but also because he was a hero to many in the Cuban-American community.Inside the church, mourners filed past a closed casket framed by flower arrangements in the shapes of the U.S. and Cuban flags, with a large family photo of Fernandez off to one side. Many touched the casket lightly and crossed themselves.The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. In addition to Fernandez, Emilio Jesus Macias, 27, and Eduardo Rivero, 25, also died in the crash.On Thursday, officials in Tampa said that a jersey worn by Fernandez in high school was missing after a candlelight vigil at his former high school. Officials at Alonso High School filed a police report, and authorities are asking whoever took the jersey to return it.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
