Another rivalry game between North Carolina and North Carolina State is on the horizon at the College World Series in Omaha. This time, the loser will go home.
No team has been hotter down the stretch than North Carolina State. UCLA’s 2-1 victory over the Wolfpack on Tuesday was only the fifth loss for State since March 31, and no one except for Florida State and the North Carolina Tar Heels had beaten the Pack. So Wolfpack coach Elliott Avent was in no mood to talk about the Tar Heel rematch Thursday night.
