State-UNC Game to be Played Under the Lights
For the first time since the infamous T.A. McLendon game in 2004, NC State and North Carolina will renew their football rivalry under the lights.
The ACC announced that the Nov. 30 regular season finale at Carter-Finley Stadium will have a 7 p.m. starting time with television coverage on the ACC Network.
It will mark the first time since 1997 that the annual showdown between the Wolfpack and Tar Heels will have been played under the lights in Raleigh. The most recent night game in the series ended in controversy after Wolfpack running back McLendon was first ruled to have scored the go-ahead touchdown in the final seconds, only to have the call overturned -- giving UNC the victory.
This year's game could hold even more intrigue, since there is a chance that both teams will need the victory to gain bowl eligibility.
