We are just less than an hour from the regular season finale, as the North Carolina Tar Heels are getting set to take on the NC State Wolfpack. The Heels are in desperate need of ending what has been a brutal loss streak to the Pack, and to add a little extra dose of urgency, a win today would make them bowl eligible for the first time since Mitch Trubisky led them to a bowl game his senior year. As for the Wolfpack, they’re attempting to end the season on a high note after the wheels fell off of their season following their loss to Boston College.
This is sure to be an intense game between these two teams, but unfortunately it will also be a messy one as well. The rain is likely to be an obstacle for both teams to navigate all night, so we will see who is able to weather the storm in the most literal sense possible.
As always, we’ll be back following the game with some post-game analysis, and hopefully we will have the pleasure of discussing Mack Brown getting this team to a bowl in his first year back at UNC.
