UNC’s out of conference schedule is pretty tough. Games at Michigan State, Kentucky, and Texas could all go either way.
It should be interesting to see how UNC deals with the new additions to the conference that come from the Big East. Those teams will definitely bring along a different style of play than UNC and other ACC schools are used to seeing.
Saturday, January 11th marks UNC’s first matchup against one of the ACC’s new additions in Syracuse. Syracuse will be looking to win the ACC outright in their first year in the conference so that game will definitely be extremely competitive. Other key match-ups are February 12th and March 8th against Duke and February 26th at NC State.
