With the ACC's release of the 2019-20 men's basketball schedule on Thursday, the Tar Heels now have a complete picture of their slate for the coming season.
Following an exhibition against Winson-Salem State, North Carolina will begin the campaign, oddly enough, on Nov. 6 at home against Notre Dame. It will be the first time UNC opens the season with a conference game since a 1966 win against Clemson.
After a road matchup with Virginia on either Friday, Dec. 6 or Saturday, Dec. 7, the Tar Heels will begin conference play in earnest with a Jan. 4 game against Georgia Tech. In fact, 2019-20 is the first season in which ACC teams will play 20 conference games, an increase that comes after seven seasons of an 18-game league schedule.
UNC will play six different ACC teams twice: Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Virginia, N.C. State and Duke.
The Tar Heels will host four additional conferences foes – Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Miami – and visit four additional teams on the road – Florida State, Louisville, Syracuse and Virginia Tech.
