The winner of the Duke-North Carolina football game has traditionally spray-painted the Victory Bell either dark or light blue immediately after the game. On Thursday, though, the Tar Heels were over-exuberant in their celebration after a 45-20 win, causing damage to the visiting locker room at Wallace Wade Stadium.
The spray paint primarily damaged the walls and carpet of the facility, which is in the Brooks Practice Facility behind Wallace Wade. Outside the locker room, someone spray painted the letters UNC on a wall, about 6 to 8 inches high, Kevin Best, a UNC football team spokesman said. Parts of the stadium wall and practice turf sustained minor damage as well.
Spraying the bell directly after the game is nothing new in 2012, when Duke beat UNC for the first time since 2003, the Blue Devils celebration covered some sections of the track dark blue.
