by Sharon Thorsland It’s been a roller coaster of a season for North Carolina. The #24 Tar Heels started off unranked, then started winning and made it all the way to number 10 in the polls before coming back down to earth after a pair of ugly losses to end the regular season. But the […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s rivalry week for North Carolina, with the 9-2 Tar Heels welcoming NC State to Kenan Stadium for a Black Friday showdown. The Heels are coming off a horrendous loss to Georgia Tech that took them completely out of the playoff equation. But they’re still in the ACC title game, headed to […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s been an interesting start to the season for North Carolina. They won their opener in fairly easy fashion, but then went down to the wire in a shoot-out with App State last week, barely escaping Boone with a wild 63-61 win. Obviously the offense was outstanding, but the defense – not […]

by Sharon Thorsland North Carolina is 8-1 and ranked 15th in the country. In football, not basketball! The Tar Heels are in the drivers seat in the ACC’s Coastal division after last week’s win over Virginia, and have their sights set on the Championship game in Charlotte.

by Sharon Thorsland It’s time for another edition of the South’s oldest rivalry, this one taking place in Charlottesville.

Kick-off is set for 8:00 on WBT. Pitt is not having nearly the same success as the Heels, the Panthers have lost two of their […]

by Sharon Thorsland   North Carolina and Duke face off on Saturday in a game that has conference implications. No, we’re not talking about basketball (81-77 anyone?). Instead we’ve actually got a football game that matters. The Tar Heels (5-1) and Blue Devils (4-2) are both vying for first place in the Coastal Division. Right […]

UNC faces struggling Miami Team by Sharon Thorsland After an ugly loss to Notre Dame at home in week four, North Carolina is back on track after a blowout win over Virginia Tech last week. That improves to Tar Heels to 4-1 on the season. Next up is a trip to Coral Gables to take […]

  by Sharon Thorsland   Well, North Carolina had its first big test of the season last week and failed miserably, getting hammered by Notre Dame at home. As usual, it was a great lack of defense that plagued the Tar Heels (3-1), who gave up 576 yards of total offense and 45 points in […]

by Sharon Thorsland North Carolina returns to action this Saturday taking on Notre Dame at Kenan Stadium (3:30 on WBT). This is not the matchup people might have predicted when the season started. The Fighting Irish were ranked 5th in the country then but have since gone 1-2 with losses to Ohio State and Marshall […]
