Two yards and one play are all that separate UNC football from No. 1 Clemson

“We’re having a different conversation if we’d made it,” Mack Brown said. “You all are talking about me being a genius instead of an idiot. That’s the difference in two points.” In a crushing loss, but shockingly close game, the Tar Heels fell 21-20 to the Clemson Tigers.

Buzz surrounding UNC football leads to student ticket fiasco

Attending UNC football games is as popular among students as it’s ever been in recent memory. With head coach Mack Brown’s return, there’s an excitement around the program that hasn’t been there since at least 2015. But a new student ticket policy, along with increased demand, has made it difficult for many students to get tickets.  Students must now claim their tickets through an online portal 10 days before game day. Claim periods for the first three home games have passed, and some have expressed their frustration with the system — especially with all tickets being claimed in 30 minutes or less for the App State and Clemson games.
