North Carolina Tar Heels


Here are things to watch in the Atlantic Coast Conference in Week 9: GAME OF THE WEEK Duke at North Carolina. The ACC's highest-profile basketball rivalry takes center stage in football with significant ramifications in the cloudy Coastal Division. The Blue Devils (4-3, 2-2) and the Tar Heels (3-4, 2-2) are both in the mix behind division leaders Virginia and Pittsburgh with the loser seemingly playing itself out of the race.

Astronauts, world leaders, a pope and war veterans all have been honored with ticker-tape parades in New York City's famed Canyon of Heroes. Now, the Women's National Team is the center of the celebration on Wednesday, commemorating its World Cup win in France on Sunday. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was on the float with some of the team members during the parade, while hundreds, if not thousands, of spectators looked on.
