We’ve made it! College Football is back! Labor Day weekend means the start of football which I’ve been waiting months for. (Yes I realize there were a few games last weekend but that was still considered week 0). All the teams return to action this weekend with games beginning tonight. And there are some big matchups. While historically many major schools play “cupcake” schools in week one, there are two big college football games in the state of North Carolina this weekend.
#13 NC State will take on East Carolina at noon on Saturday while UNC visits Appalachian State which kicks off at the same time. Both should be compelling matchups to match and while the two ACC schools are both favored, they will need to be on top of their game. Emotions are sure to run high in these in-state rivalries. But these aren’t the only Carolina schools excited to play this weekend. Wake Forest will take the field tonight while Duke, Charlotte, and Coastal Carolina play Friday night. Saturday will feature the two previously mentioned games and Spencer Rattler’s South Carolina Gamecock debut. The finale of the weekend will take place Monday night with Clemson in prime time.
Check out the match-ups below and make sure to come back Monday for a recap of the games. It’s going to be a great weekend of college football in both North and South Carolina!
