Tar Heels spend Christmas in Charlotte

Posted December 24, 2013
Updated December 27, 2013

— The University of North Carolina football team is in Charlotte for Christmas, preparing for their Saturday bowl matchup against 9-3 Cincinnati. 

On Tuesday, they did the NASCAR thing at Charlotte Motor Speedway where Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham tweeted a photo of head football coach Larry Fedora with a UNC-themed car.

Both teams are looking to end the season on an up note after difficult starts. Fedora's Tar Heels started the season 1-5 and looking lost. After losing starting senior quarterback Bryn Renner, they could have lost their way. Instead, they regrouped and rebounded to finish 6-6.

UNC has beaten Cincinnati in two meetings, the last one in Chapel Hill in 1991.

    While watching this game in Bank of America stadium just remember Bill Friday and Bank of America billionaire heir C.D. Spangler showed up on UNC Charlotte's campus advising them not begin a new football program. Then their alma mater in Chapel Hill sunk $80 million in upgrades to Kenan Stadium. I would never give a dime of my money to this crew.
