UNC-N.C. State rivalry returns to the DBAP

Last year’s series between North Carolina and N.C. State featured an 18-inning marathon in the ACC Tournament and two meetings in the College World Series.

But both programs have struggled this season. So when the teams meet today at a sold-out Durham Bulls Athletic Park (7 p.m., weather permitting) for what could be their only 2014 matchup, the result will be important for a different reason.

After combining to go 109-28 last season, both UNC (21-15) and N.C. State (20-15) are fighting to make the NCAA Tournament field this year. Aside from the bragging rights involved with beating a rival in front of at least 10,000 fans, both teams also need a win to improve their postseason resume.
