Preview: East Carolina Pirates at North Carolina Tar Heels

East Carolina is one of five in-state opponents on North Carolina's schedule this season. The Tar Heels' early season struggles and a lack of star power on ECU limits the interest level of anyone outside the state's borders. The game marks the grand opening of the Kenan Amphitheatre, which will host tailgating and a pregame concert by country artist (and UNC football alum) Chase Rice. Prediction: North Carolina 21, East Carolina 7 (CBS Sports)
