For the 100th consecutive year, the North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils will face each other on the gridiron. Today’s game will be the 73rd contest for the Victory Bell, and Carolina is riding a two-game winning streak.
Head coach Mack Brown lost the first two matchups of his career against Duke, but has not lost to the Blue Devils since 1989. UNC’s last two victories extended Brown’s winning streak to 10 games over the team from Durham.
When the Tar Heels take to the field today, they will wear the gorgeous Carolina Blue-Carolina Blue-White uniform:
Despite having a handful of nooners last season, this will be the first 12:00 PM kickoff with normal attendance policies since 2018. Expect a light chill and some fog early, but it will heat up quickly leading up to kickoff. No rain today, and a high of 82.
