UNC-Virginia soon will be FBS's second-oldest rivalry

Thursday night marks the 117th game between the Cavaliers and Tar Heels. They first met in 1892, playing once in Charlottesville and once in Atlanta. Only four times since 1900 have the Cavaliers and Tar Heels not met, those occasions due to World War I. Barring unimagined conference realignment, Virginia-North Carolina soon will rank as the Bowl Subdivision’s second most-played series. (Daily Press)
