Next Game Kickoff Countdown


Bears Football 2017 Season

The 2017 season is just around the corner and we are excited for another year of UNC Bears football. The UNC Alumni Association is planning a full home-game tailgating schedule as taking the Fan Fest tailgate on the road to the University of Colorado. Mark your schedules and save the dates for another winning campaign! We look forward to seeing you at the Pepsi UNC Bears Fan Fest Tailgates and around the Bear Network this fall to root on the Bears. The tailgate lot opens at 9:00 a.m. with all other Fan Fest activities starting three hours before the schedule start time of the game. GO BEARS!
