The bell is tolling on UNC seniors, as Saturday marks their last chance to beat Duke

The Tar Heels (3-4, 2-2 ACC) haven't lost four consecutive games to the Blue Devils since the 1950s.

Heading into this weekend's rivalry game, UNC football's senior class is winless against Duke. That's added extra motivation to upperclassmen and underclassmen alike as they prepare for the critical Coastal Division battle at Kenan Stadium.
