CHARLOTTE – Thursday night’s college football season opener between USC and North Carolina won’t be the last one played between those universities in Charlotte.
The Charlotte Sports Foundation announced Wednesday the schools will play on Labor Day weekend in 2019 and 2023 at Bank of America Stadium.
“On the eve of this year’s matchup, we are delighted to announce two more games are scheduled for the future,” said South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner in a written statement. “This is a great game for the student-athletes and fans at each school to kick off the football season.”
The Gamecocks and Tar Heels will meet in the Belk College Kickoff Classic Thursday night with kickoff set for 6:00 p.m.
North Carolina leads the all-time series 34-18-4, but the Gamecocks have won five of the last six meetings.
