The home-and-home series with North Carolina during the 2006-07 seasons was officially announced. The Bulls will play the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill on Sept. 23, 2006, and UNC will travel to Raymond James Stadium on Sept. 22, 2007. It's the second time in two weeks USF has landed a home-and-home with an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent, following a deal with Miami that includes a road game for USF in 2005. "South Florida has developed into a very competitive football program in just a short amount of time," UNC athletic director Dick Baddour said. "We look forward to playing in Tampa in an NFL stadium in 2007."
