North Carolina will play South Carolina to open the 2015 college football season at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium, a source confirmed to the Observer on Tuesday.
The official announcement of the game -- which will be played Sept. 5, 2015 -- is expected to come at a news conference Thursday morning at the stadium.
The Tar Heels and Gamecocks last played in 2007, a 21-15 victory by
South Carolina in Chapel
Hill. North Carolina leads the
series 34-17-4, but the teams have only played 11 times since left the ACC in 1971. The
Gamecocks hold a 6-5 advantage during that stretch. They will also open up the 2013 season with a game Aug. 29 at Williams-Brice Stadium. – David Scott South Carolina
