The UNC football team will gear up this Saturday to take on the age-old tradition of competing against Duke University for the Victory Bell at the Homecoming game.
The Tar Heels will try to break Duke's three-year victory streak, and if you're like most UNC students, you didn't get tickets from some silly lottery because apparently some guy named Mack made football popular again.
It's okay. The Daily Tar Heel has got you covered. Here's a list of six great places to watch the game outside of Kenan Stadium.
1. Sup Dogs
Kick back with an Orange Sup Crush or Sup Swirl while you cheer the Heels to victory. Sup Dogs offers a great atmosphere for game day. The Greenville location was even voted best college bar in the country by Barstool (even though we all know He's Not Here was robbed). It's also a great place for football fans not of drinking age, thanks to a variety of hot dog and burger options.
2. Carolina Brewery
With a wide selection of food and craft beer, Carolina Brewery is the place to be on game day. Carolina Brewery is a tried and true destination on Franklin Street. It's been there for almost 25 years — just short of a minor Franklin miracle. So (if you're 21), grab a beer, sit back and watch the Heels kick some Blue Devil butt.
3. Crying over your laptop in Davis
Are you a STEM major, trying to graduate in three years or just behind in all of your classes? Davis Library is an awesome place to watch the game while crying over your homework. Thank goodness for split screens, am I right? Study rooms offer a private location, where nobody can hear your sobs. And hey, if we lose for the fourth year in a row, you've beaten the rest of us to crying.
