The football game kicks off a full day of athletics competition at UNC. In
addition to the football game, the men¹s basketball team opens
regular-season action at 8 p.m. against Old Dominion in the Smith Center and
the men¹s and women¹s swim teams compete at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the Nike
Cup at Koury Natatorium.
Season-ticket holders should note that separate parking permits will be in
use for the football and men¹s basketball games.
"This will be an exciting day for Tar Heel fans," says Director of Athletics
Dick Baddour. "We scheduled the football game at 1 p.m. to accommodate all
our fans who wish to attend both the football and basketball games. We
encourage our fans that attend both games to visit our splendid Chapel Hill
restaurants and/or take in some holiday shopping downtown in between games.
It should be a fun day for everyone in the University community."
The winner of the UNC-Duke football game receives 1.0 point in the Carlyle
Cup. The Tar Heels currently lead, 5-1.
