UNC readies for emotional rivalry

Many people would prefer to have the North Carolina-N.C. State football game late in the year, to culminate the teams’ seasons with what many fans consider the state’s most important gridiron rivalry. Instead, the two teams will meet this Saturday, the earliest date the two UNC-system schools have clashed since 1989. “I’d like to play them at the end of the year,” said senior defensive tackle Chase Page. “But we’ll play them first game of the season if they want.” (Daily Tar Heel)
