UNC has 9 o’clock game moved earlier

By R.L. Bynum

The only people who like 9 o’clock starts are television partners and West Coast fans, so whenever one of those games gets moved earlier, it’s a good day.

Thursday is a good day.

Carolina’s Tuesday, Feb. 8 game at Clemson that originally was going to start at 9 p.m. and air on ESPN or ESPN2 has been moved up to 6 p.m. and will be shown on ACC Network.

It’s a particularly nice move on a weekday when most people have to get up the next morning to go to work.

That game for UNC (14–6, 6–3 ACC), comes three days after the first matchup with Duke on Saturday, Feb. 5 in Chapel Hill. Four days later, Carolina is back at home to meet Florida State.

The Tigers (11–9, 3–6) will be coming off a Saturday, Feb. 5 road game against Georgia Tech.
