Devils, Eagles renew cross-town rivalry
North Carolina kicked off the football season Thursday night. Today the rest of the Triangle college football teams get started.
Duke and N.C. State begin their seasons at home against nonconference foes.
The Blue Devils will face N.C. Central in the third Bull City Gridiron Classic (4 pm, ESPN3). Duke has won the first two meetings between the Durham schools.
Duke looks to break the five-game losing streak that ended the 2012 season. NCCU plays its first game since head coach Henry Frazier was fired a week ago.
In Raleigh, N.C. State plays Louisiana Tech in the Wolfpack’s first game under head coach Dave Doeren. The game at Carter-Finley Stadium starts at noon and will be televised on WRAZ.
