North Carolina Vs. South Carolina College Football 2015

If you are a Carolina football fan, north or south, you will want to be in Bank of America Stadium on September 3rd, 2015. The University of South Carolina and the University of North Carolina (UNC) will face off on a neutral playing field this fall to kick of the 2015-2016 NCAA college football season. It is going to be an interesting match up this year. UNC quarterback Marquise Williams will be entering his senior season with 4983 career passing yards. He will be looking to lead the Tar Heels to an ACC Championship Game this year. South Carolina, however, will be starting quarterback Connor Mitch who has not started a game yet. It will be interesting to see how he preforms on the big stage. This game will feature two different playing styles. UNC runs one of the fastest offenses in college football. UNC averages 72.3 plays per game. South Carolina is a more traditional power running football team. South Carolina running back Mike Davis will have a big game against the Tar Heels. His power will be difficult for the weak UNC defense to stop. UNC does have a new defensive coordinator with a history of success at Auburn, Gene Chizik will be attempting to revamp the UNC defense this season. It will be interesting to see which style comes out on top in this match up, Speed or Power. In the last match up power triumphed and I believe that it will likely repeat. The final score of the last match up was a South Carolina victory 27-10. The South Carolina team this year is not the same team that was on the field two years ago. But the traditional power style of play is still preached by coach Spurrior at South Carolina. This will be a must watch for any college football fans.
As a fan of the Tar Heels I believe this game should be a regularly scheduled rivalry game. I have spoken with fans of South Carolina and they agree; that a annual rivalry game between the two Carolinas would be a great rivalry. A home and home between UNC and South Carolina would generate tons of revenue for the universities and more than likely turn into a rivalry as great as South Carolina Vs. Clemson, or North Carolina Vs. either Duke or North Carolina State.
The game between UNC and South Carolina will take place at six pm on Thursday, Sept. 3rd 2015. It will be one of the first division one match ups of the season. Tickets to this game are going to be expensive. Fans of both programs are going to be clawing at the gates to get into this game. Tickets to this game will cost at least one hundred dollars. So if you want to see it live be ready to pay a little more than usual. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN so if you cannot find your way into Bank of America stadium on Sept. 3rd, it will not be difficult to watch the game at a sports bar, restaurant, or at home.
