Only eight miles separate these schools. Only a few shades on Pantone colors separate these schools. Known as the Tobacco Road Rivalry due to the fact that Tobacco road (US Highway 15-501) is the stretch of blacktop connecting the rivals two schools.

If you missed it, you missed out. A few sights and scenes from Duke and UNC fans alike...

Even in the most heated rivalries, teams can come together. Duke and North Carolina come together to honor legendary coach Dean Smith.
