CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Regardless of records, streaks or personnel, chances are that something odd, intriguing or exciting is going to happen when North Carolina (10-5, 0-2 ACC) plays at Florida State (10-5, 2-0) on Saturday.

During the Roy Williams era, it has tended to.

Remember when the Tar Heels blew a 24-point lead and lost in overtime in 2004? Or when they needed six 3-pointers from Wes Miller to win 81-80 two years later? Then there were the game-winners by Ty Lawson and Harrison Barnes in 2009 and 2011.

TALLAHASSEE — It was a scene of bedlam.

Before the Florida State Seminoles could even attempt to sprint from midcourt to their home bench after the game's final buzzer sounded, they were engulfed by a sea of screaming, arm-chopping fans. Fireworks blasts that sounded like cannon shots echoed throughout the arena. The smoke from the pyrotechnic show lingered in a haze above the nearly 12,000 that emptied onto the 94-foot wooden floor to loudly celebrate a hallmark program victory.

Last Jan. 14, the Donald L. Tucker Center was a spectacle of postgame chaos. Saturday afternoon, the Seminoles are hoping to see a more orderly and controlled sight when they host North Carolina for the first time since last January's 33-point victory over the Tar Heels turned the ACC on its head and finally brought true conference respect to FSU.
