Tar Heels, Gamecocks to play football in Charlotte in 2015

May 7, 2013 

North Carolina and South Carolina will open the 2015 college football season with a game against each other at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium, a source confirmed Tuesday.

The official announcement of the game – to be played Sept. 5, 2015 – is expected to come at a news conference Thursday morning at the stadium.

The Tar Heels and Gamecocks last played in 2007, a 21-15 victory by South Carolina in Chapel Hill. North Carolina leads the series 34-17-4, but the teams have only played 11 times since South Carolina left the ACC in 1971. The Gamecocks hold a 6-5 advantage during that stretch.

They will also open up the 2013 season against each other with a game Aug. 28 at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Bank of America Stadium, which is host to the Belk Bowl and the ACC’s championship game, has had several regular-season games also, the most recent being a contest between East Carolina and South Carolina in 2011. North Carolina played N.C. State in Charlotte in 1997 and ’98.
