From Diehard Sport:

It wouldn’t be rivalry week without a mascot head getting stolen.  On Wednesday, the head of the Duke Blue Devils mascot was stolen and put up on a stake on top of a student store in Chapel Hill.

A photo showed up on Instagram of people wearing the mascot head before it was placed on the stake. The photo posted to Instagram reportedly had the following caption: “Shout out to my brother and his friends for stealing the Duke mascot head and mounting it on a stake.”

Here's a look at the photos reportedly posted on Instagram (the photo above was also part of the same post):

WGHP in North Carolina shared the following information:

Derek Rowles, an executive producer for ABC 11 in Raleigh, said Chapel Hill Police have taken possession of the Duke mascot head. It was removed from the bookstore around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday.

This incident likely heightened the tension between the schools prior to Wednesday's basketball game, which Duke won 73-68.

Preparation pays off for Plumlee

Unfortunately for them, Mike Krzyzewski had other ideas and stopped...

Plumlee leads No. 2 Duke past rival UNC

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- With its star big man on the bench with foul trouble, Duke went small to beat its top rival -- and one of its smallest players came up big. The run that propelled the second-ranked Blue Devils to a 73-68 victory over North Carolina on Wednesday night started when Mason Plumlee sat down and backup guard Tyler Thornton warmed up. "I think the hero for us...

Duke hangs on against UNC
