Two of the premiere football (and basketball) programs in the ACC square off on the field whenever the North Carolina Tar Heels face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Carolina and Georgia Tech have been playing football against each other for over 100 years. Their first game was in October 1915 when Georgia Tech trounced North Carolina by a score of 23-3. Since then this annual game has been fairly evenly matched with Ga Tech just holding a slight edge in the wins column over UNC. The fans and alumni for the Yellow Jackets and Tar Heels show up for this game, which helps to create an amazing football atmosphere. When the game is in Chapel Hill expect to see a capacity crowd of Tar Heel supporters. When the game is played in Atlanta, there will be a huge number of fans of the Rambling Wreck in attendance, but also a few Tar Heels who may live in the metro area. This football game is for more than just bragging rights, as the winning team puts themselves in better contention to earn a spot in the ACC Championship Game. Don't miss your chance to see UNC vs Ga Tech play on the football field in 2024.
