The Tar Heels and Wolfpack , which NCCU will face for the third straight season, are two of four ACC opponents along with Miami and Virginia Tech Moton's team will be facing this time.

Other familiar opponents will include High Point, Savannah State and Longwood - with whom the Eagles will have home-and-home sets for the third straight season - as well as a visit to Colgate to face the Red Raiders for the third straight year.

The Eagles have six games on the schedule against in-state opponents, as they will host N.C. Wesleyan on Nov. 18 and travel to East Carolina on Jan. 3.

There is also one MEAC opponent on the slate, as Maryland-Eastern Shore will visit McLendon-McDougald Gym.

The Nov. 11 game with the Tar Heels, which will be both teams' opener in the 2K Sports Classic Benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer, will be shown live at 9 p.m. on ESPN2. The rest of the event will have the Eagles visiting Florida International for games against the host Golden Panthers as well as Murray State and James Madison.

The UNC contest is one of the Eagles' three scheduled TV games, as they will be on the Big Ten Network at Iowa on Nov. 28 at 12:35 p.m. and at Indiana on Dec. 19 at 8:30.

NCCU will also host the B.C. Powder Classic on Jan. 15-16, taking on Tennessee Temple and Apprentice with CIAA member Chowan as the de facto co-host.

The Eagles' other home opponents will be Carver Bible, Florida Gulf Coast, Western Illinois and Coastal Carolina.
