No. 16 North Carolina has added a home game against North Carolina Central for Saturday.

The schools announced the game Wednesday.

The Tar Heels were originally scheduled to host Elon, but that game was put on hold after that program paused team activities due to a positive COVID-19 test. UNC says it will work with Elon to reschedule that game for next season.

The UNC-N.C. Central game brings together two nearby programs, with the Tar Heels based in Chapel Hill and the Eagles of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference based in Durham about 20 minutes away.
