Friday was a day to forget for North Carolina fans.
In a span of minutes, the Tar Heels football team missed a field goal to extend the game to a third overtime and the basketball team blew an eight point lead with under six minutes to go to suffer its first loss of the 2022-23 season.
It was a painful few minutes at the time and now we also know that it was a historically bad few minutes as well. Per ESPN Stats and Info, this is the first time that a ranked UNC basketball team and ranked football team lost on the same day in history:
What could have been a big day for the program has turned into a disaster and now UNC fans are hoping we can forget this day altogether.
Next up for the basketball team is a Sunday game against Alabama in the Phil Knight Invitational while the football team has to wait until next Saturday for a chance at Clemson in the ACC title game.
