North Carolina > South Carolina
From our roads to our football teams, North Carolina once again proved why we are the better of the Carolinas.
On Saturday, Sept. 2, UNC won their game against the University of South Carolina, 31-17. UNC’s defense had a total of nine sacks, the second-most since the school started tracking them in 2000.
On Monday, Sept. 4, Duke beat Clemson, who was number nine in the AP Top 25 Poll, in a huge upset for the South Carolina school. The Blue Devil’s victory also marked their first win against a top-10-ranked team since 1989.
