North Carolina Hoping for 'Anything Can Happen' Miracle with Duke Coming to Town

Whether you believe Duke vs. North Carolina is the greatest rivalry in any sport or merely a top-five hate-fest in men's college basketball, there's no denying that it is a bucket list-worthy event and a must-watch affair at least twice every season.

When the Tobacco Road titans tangle at the Dean E. Smith Center at 6 p.m. ET Saturday night, it will be the 39th consecutive time the Tar Heels play host with one of the two teams ranked in the AP Top 10.

This is likely neither the first nor the last time you'll see this stat nugget, but in the past 100 meetings dating back to January 1979, each team has won 50 times, and each team has scored exactly 7,746 points.
