CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina is short-handed again due to the ongoing NCAA investigation into its football program. The Tar Heels will be without 12 players for Saturday’s home opener against Georgia Tech.

The list includes NFL prospects Marvin Austin, Robert Quinn, Kendric Burney and Deunta Williams on defense. The Tar Heels are also without top receiver Greg Little and running back Ryan Houston.

Thirteen players missed the opener against LSU on Labor Day weekend. The school had hoped to find out the status of several players during the off week that followed, but only tailback Shaun Draughn was cleared from that group.

The NCAA is looking into agent-related benefits and possible academic misconduct involving a tutor.
