Another weekend closer to fall and another day with the NFL pre season playing its games. In all there are five games tonight, four of them will feature a former UNC player in it, with two of them having former North Carolina football players on both sidelines. A pair of them will be televised, one by the NFL Network, with kick off time at 4:00 p.m. EST, and the other by CBS, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST.
