UNC gets prime TV slot for opener

North Carolina will get a prime TV slot for its season opener against LSU in Atlanta.
ESPN and Chick-fil-A Bowl officials announced Friday that the Sept. 4 game at the Georgia Dome will begin at 8 p.m. on ABC.

"There's no doubt this is a top game of the opening weekend," said Chick-fil-A Bowl president and CEO Gary Stokan, who's marketing the game, "and we're thrilled that ABC will deliver the Tigers and Tar Heels to a national audience.

This will be Atlanta's third straight marquee matchup between ACC and SEC opponents on the opening Saturday of the season. Alabama has defeated Clemson in 2008 and Virginia Tech in 2009 in the previous games.

The Alabama-Virginia Tech matchup, which matched two top-10 teams, delivered a 4.2 rating on ABC, which represented more than 5.5 million viewers.

Whos to say if Carolina will lose to the losing state university? From what I have heard Carolina will be pretty decent this season coming up and dont forget that our 2nd ranked defense from last year is back this season

It would be "who blew whom," for your information.

And maybe you should be asking yourself why the happiness and success of others makes you upset.
