History of UNC-ECU includes cigars, spies, videotape

This series between UNC and ECU began against the backdrop of the battle over the ECU Medical School. Then-Chancellor Leo Jenkins wanted to train doctors in Greenville, and he took his campaign to the N.C. General Assembly. In October of 1973, the ECU football team, which counted Jenkins as its No. 1 fan, played in Chapel Hill, on the one campus which already had a medical school supported by the state.
