Tar Heels top Wolfpack in athletics spending, revenue

No matter which side has the most points at the end of Sept. 24's annual NCSU-UNC football game, Tar Heel boosters can at least boast that they post bigger numbers on the balance sheet. Including facilities costs, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Athletics expects to spend $48 million in the 2005-06 school year compared to $35 million allocated at North Carolina State University. There is a similar discrepancy for spending on the gridiron. UNC's football budget totals about $8 million, while NCSU's is considerably smaller at around $5 million. (MSNBC)
