Photo: UNC Pokes Fun At Duke With “Snow Excuse” Banner
While last week’s rivalry game matchup between Duke and North Carolina was technically cancelled due to safety concerns given the icy roads in the area, the underlying cause was simply that the Blue Devils couldn’t get from Durham to Chapel Hill (an 11-mile trip) given the situation. UNC had urged fans to stay home, claiming it’d do its best to fill the arena with students already on-campus.
Thursday morning, UNC fans are still poking fun at Duke for the mishap. With the two set to square off tonight in the makeup game, they’ve come up with some creative signs.

While fans may have been upset, you can bet that UNC’s administrators aren’t. Check out the difference in ticket prices because of the rescheduling.
Cheapest seat for UNC-Duke last Wednesday was $25. This AM? $172 for a single, according to @seatgeek.
