Extra Points: Another Twist & Turn To Heated Rivalry


The Tar Heels and Pirates played eight times from 1972-81, then took a two-decade hiatus when UNC's administration decided to play no in-state schools in football or basketball outside of its ACC rivals N.C. State, Duke and Wake Forest. East Carolina chafed as it attempted to build its program on regional and national levels and watched as the Tar Heels scheduled colorless home games in the 1990s against the likes of TCU, Texas-El Paso and Ohio University.
