North Carolina's cross country teams will split up this weekend as the women head to Ames, Iowa, and the men travel to Cullowhee.
The Tar Heels were off last weekend after sweeping the UNC Challenge at Finley Field on Sept. 30.
The women are competing in the NCAA Preview at Iowa State. Race time is 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. UNC will face stiff competition, as 16 of the top-25 ranked schools will be in attendance.
Some of the teams include Stanford (No. 1), Colorado (2), BYU (3) Kansas State (5) and local rivals N.C. State (8) and Duke (23).
The men stay a little closer to home and travel to Western Carolina for the North Carolina Intercollegiate Championship.
The Tar Heels will match up with N.C. State (13) and the Duke Team B. The race kicks off at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday.
