ESPN viewers voted it one of the greatest rivalry in college sports, and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone in the Triangle who doesn't have strong feelings about their favorite shade of blue. But what happens when the UNC-Duke University rivalry isn’t just between students or campuses, but across the dinner table — or even in the mirror?
Walker Burgin, a UNC first-year, said his family practically represented the Atlantic Coast Conference: his parents attended the University of Virginia and North Carolina State University, and his twin brother currently attends Duke.
This past summer, Burgin said he and his brother referred to each other as their school names.
"We were doing little jabs to each other," he said. "All over the summer."
He expects the rivalry to last much longer than his and his brother's four years at school.
