A look back to UNC’s 1959 football season and a special Thanksgiving Day game


Thanksgiving Day 1959 dawned clear and mild. In the broadcast booth for the telecast were play-by-play announcer Lindsey Nelson and color commentator Red Grange. Since both Duke and Carolina students were on holiday, only 33,000 fans turned out for the game. In his pregame locker room speech, Coach Hickey mentioned something for the first time during the ‘59 season. (UNC.edu)
