RALEIGH, N.C. — Atlantic Coast Conference teams like No. 12 North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Florida State are focusing on correcting mistakes that surfaced in their season-opening games. 

The list of miscues include too many penalties and turnovers. 

Multiple ACC teams also had missed field goals and punting problems. 

Some of those problems could be potentially tied back to altered offseason training routines and practices for teams amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Tar Heels coach Mack Brown says teams typically can make the most improvement between their first and second games because “you've got live work now" and “things that you can correct.”
