QB competition may continue through game week for UNC

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Larry Fedora still isn't ready to pick a starting quarterback.

The Tar Heels on Monday released the depth chart for this week's opener against California, but it didn't answer many of the questions that lingered through preseason camp.

LSU graduate transfer Brandon Harris , redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt and sophomore Nathan Elliott were each separated by ''or'' on the depth chart. Fedora says he has ''no update'' on the position and adds he might not select a starter until gameday.

He says the competition has been extended ''just because nobody has separated themselves.''

Also of note, left guard Khaliel Rodgers, who said earlier this month that he was quitting football, has returned to the team and was listed as the backup to Nick Polino.
