But, if you still need something to get you to Kenan Stadium, the beautiful facility that the Tar Heels call home, here it is… get to the games versus Georgia Tech (11...

Tar Heels' Bernard deserving of recognition

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Giovani Bernard isnt going to win the Heisman Trophy in December, but finding a better and more thrilling player anywhere in the nation might be akin to that whole needle-in-a-haystack deal.

Yesterday in Chapel Hill began the Fedora era for the North Carolina football program. It began with a 62 to nothing shut out of FCS foe Elon.
