Queen Elizabeth's Lone College Football Experience Came at a UNC Game


As the United Kingdom celebrates Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th year on the throne, it is worth noting that her only trip to the United States for a college football game came on Oct. 19, 1957, when North Carolina headed north to play Maryland at Byrd Stadium. Joined by Prince Philip, the two royals watched the Terrapins upset the No. 14 Tar Heels, 21-7. (Inside Carolina)
