North Carolina Sports Teams

The Blue Devils and Tar Heels are Tops in NC


Nothing But Net

College Sports in North Carolina

As you make your way across the North Carolina landscape, notice the abundance of top flight universities, each with a rich history of collegiate sports success.

From the Duke University Blue Devils in Durham, to their arch nemesis and cross town rivals University of North Carolina Tar Heels, there's a wealth of exciting and history-laden university sports teams in the Tar Heel State.

Travel through the Piedmont Region of NC and discover Durham. A short drive from Raleigh, Durham is home to Duke University.

The Blue Devils have a long list of basketball success – multiple national championships, a legion of fans, many players who've gone on to individual NBA success, and a wonderful home court – Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Head southwest less than 12 miles and you'll find Chapel Hill. Home to the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is a pleasant and eclectic city – a city crazy for the Tar Heels. UNC fields 27 varsity level sports teams and is most famous for basketball.

The men's team has won more than a few national championships and spawned Michael Jordan. Make the short drive in from nearby Cary and head for Dean E. Smith Student Activities Center, home court for Tar Heels basketball.

When you're traveling coastal NC, check out the excitement of East Carolina University Pirates. Fielding 19 varsity level sports teams, you'll have your pick – the fall is great for basketball and football, while the spring is ideal for college baseball.

Found in Greenville, the ECU campus is a scenic drive from nearby Tarboro. Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium is the home of ECU Pirates football, while the Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum houses basketball. ECU baseball home games are played at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

Winston-Salem, west of Greensboro and more centrally located in the state, is home to Wake Forest University. The Demon Deacons are another example of the college sports landscape in NC.

With 16 varsity teams ranging from basketball and football to golf and rugby, there's plenty to experience here, too. Check out a basketball game at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

In Raleigh, not far from Garner, head for North Carolina State University and check out Wolf Pack sports. There are 24 different varsity level Wolf Pack teams – experience the highs and lows of college sports on your trek through North Carolina.
