Default Re: UNC Tar-Heels Football Schedule '09

Just some extra notes from

Carolina's Spring Showcase is set for Saturday, March 28. A kickoff time has not been determined. Stay tuned to for more details as they become available.

2009 Schedule Notes:

North Carolina is 3-0 all-time against The Citadel. The last meeting was a 45-14 Carolina win in 1986. The other games were played in 1915 and 1939.
Carolina travels to Connecticut for the first time in school history in 2009. The Tar Heels won the previous two meetings with the Huskies in Chapel Hill, 48-21 in 1990 and 38-12 in 2008. This marks the eighth consecutive year Carolina has played Big East conference institution.
North Carolina plays host to East Carolina for the first time since 2001. The previous two matchups against the Pirates came in Greenville in 2003 (a 28-17 UNC win) and 2007 (a 34-31 ECU victory). The Tar Heels are 8-2-1 all-time against East Carolina, including a 7-1-1 mark in Chapel Hill.
North Carolina and Georgia Southern are meeting for the first time on Oct. 10.
North Carolina will play back-to-back Thursday night games for the first time in school history.
While the North Carolina vs. Duke game has typically been the final game of the season for each team that has not always been the case. As recent as 2005, Carolina finished the season at Virginia Tech.
The last time Carolina played its final regular season game against NC State was 1998 in Charlotte. The last time the final game of the year was played in Raleigh was 1995.
Carolina will look to extend its three-game home win streak against Miami when the teams meet Nov. 14 in Chapel Hill. Carolina leads the series with the Hurricanes, 7-5, and has won all three games played in Chapel Hill.
North Carolina will play at Boston College for just the second time ever and the first time since 1984.
