CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — In case you’ve been living under a rock, this is old news : NC State and UNC are not each other’s biggest fans, according to WTVD-TV.

The two teams face off against each other at 12:30 p.m. Saturday in Chapel Hill.

“I know there’s no love between these two schools, and I know their players and our players equally want to beat each other,” said Wolfpack Head Coach Dave Doeren.

The bitter feeling between the two rivals will be on its utmost display in the 104th meeting between the schools’ football programs.

“Our fans go back and forth the whole year of who’s going to be better and what’s going on here and what’s going on up there,” said Tar Heels quarterback Marquise Williams. “It’s going to be a great environment on Saturday.”

After denying cross-town rival, Duke, a shot in the ACC championship game with a 45-20 win on November 20th, the Tar Heels find themselves in an interesting position that is rare in college football — playing back-to-back rivalry games.
