We aren’t getting that Duke vs. Carolina matchup in the NCAA National Championship game as many had hoped, but we will see the schools battle in another forum: on “The Price Is Right.”
The popular game show will premiere a special college rivals-themed episode on Friday, featuring contestants from rival universities competing for fabulous cash and prizes. Among the competitors are students or alumni from UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke. **UPDATE: The show has moved the airdate to Friday, March 31.**
Peyton Dilweg of Chapel Hill will represent Duke and Dayci Brookshire will play for UNC.
Other rivalries: University of Southern California and UCLA; University of Michigan and Michigan State; University of Texas at Austin and University of Oklahoma; University of South Carolina and Clemson; University of Georgia and Georgia Tech; Army and Navy.
Locally, “The Price is Right” airs at 11 a.m. on WNCN (CBS).
