Scrimmage Moved To Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, N.C. - North Carolina's spring football scrimmage scheduled for this evening in Greensboro has been moved to Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill at 5 p.m.  The scrimmage is open to the public. 

Nearly two inches of precipitation has fallen over the last 24 hours in the Greensboro area and the field conditions are unplayable and unsafe.

"We certainly appreciate all the efforts Grimsley High School has made to try to accommodate our scrimmage, but after consulting with officials at the high school, we are all in agreement that it is best to hold the scrimmage in Chapel Hill," said UNC head coach Larry Fedora.  "We have great fans in the Greensboro area and I'm disappointed we will not be able to practice there this evening.  However, the last thing we would want to occur is for someone to get hurt because of the playing surface."

Parking for tonight's scrimmage at Kenan Stadium is available in the Rams Head Deck.  The No. 1 ranked UNC baseball team also plays this evening vs. Maryland at 7 p.m.
