Johns Hopkins moved to the top of many rankings with last Saturday's 11-10 overtime victory over then-No. 1 Virginia. The Blue Jays (8-0) are just one of three undefeated teams and put that unblemished record on the line when they meet No. 10 North Carolina at the Konica Minolta Big City Classic. The Tar Heels (7-3) have lost 24 of the 40 all-time contests with Johns Hopkins, but they are 4-1 in the teams' last five meetings. Here are a few factors that could influence the outcome at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Sunday.

No. 10 North Carolina scored four goals in the first 10 minutes of the fourth quarter as the Tar Heels upset the No. 1 Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team, 13-9, on Sunday night in the Big City Classic in East Rutherford, N.J. The previously unbeaten Blue Jays (8-1) had taken over the No. 1 ranking after beating defending-champion Virginia on March 24, but ran into a faster and quicker North Carolina team that dominated both the second and fourth quarters before an announced 25,934 at MetLife Stadium.

Saturday's Maryland-North Carolinamen's lacrosse showdown in Chapel Hill, N.C., was a fight to the finish - right up to the point where it actually became one. The two teams didn't shed their lacrosse gloves for boxing gloves as a bench-clearing brawl began in the final minute of the Tar Heels' 11-10 win , but that certainly didn't stop the fisticuffs before a national television audience. As you can see in the video below, in a matter of seconds, Tar Heels attackman Greg McBride goes from lying on the Fetzer Field grass to on the attack.

When No. 13 North Carolina plays No. 10 Maryland on Saturday, it might be a great time for the Tar Heels to find an identity. They've been nomads for more than a decade. Syracuse has an identity. The Orange likes to run and gun and have great midfielders. Virginia is known for its fast pace, transition and athleticism. When you think of Maryland and Johns Hopkins, you think of physical defense and gritty play. But Carolina? Nothing comes to mind. Even in Joe Breschi's four years as North Carolina's head coach, the Tar Heels still haven't found themselves.

North Carolina is clinging to a spot in the top 15, but the No. 13 Tar Heels (5-3) have dropped three of their last five contests. The final score of last Friday's game against Atlantic Coast Conference foe Duke was 13-11, but North Carolina trailed, 9-3, at halftime and 10-3 5 minutes, 46 seconds into the third quarter. So it would appear that No. 10 Maryland, which visits Chapel Hill, N.C., this Saturday, is getting the Tar Heels at an opportune time. But coach John Tillman pointed out that in 2011, the Terps were riding a four-game winning streak and North Carolina had lost two games before the Tar Heels beat Maryland, 11-6, in College Park.

Desperate for a win in Saturday's opening game of the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic, No. 12 North Carolina took the field at M&T Bank Stadium sporting a completely revamped starting attack. The results were anything but overwhelming, but still enough to help the Tar Heels emerge with a 9-8 win over No. 20 Princeton and avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2006. "When you lose two in a row, you've got to make some changes," Tar Heels coach Joe Breschi said. "Coming off two losses, these guys kept their composure and kept fighting.

After opening the season with four consecutive wins, No. 12 North Carolina has sustained losses to a pair of unranked teams in Lehigh (now No. 15) on Saturday and Penn on Tuesday. The trend is slightly alarming for a team expected to contend for a national championship after featuring a pair of celebrated transfers in attackmen Jack McBride (Princeton) and Davey Emala (Georgetown), but coach Joe Breschi said team morale has not changed. “I'd say the biggest thing for us is continuing to find out where the pieces fit,” he said.
