The North Carolina Tar Heels will take on the Oregon Ducks in the SDCCU Holiday Bowl in San Diego, CA on December 28. The game is scheduled to air at 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX.

UNC (9-4, 6-2 ACC) enters this game coming off a brutal loss to Clemson in the ACC Championship. The 93-spot difference between North Carolina’s SP+ offensive and defensive rankings might be the widest of any team in the country. The Tar Heels are heading into their 37th bowl games with a 15-21 record in their previous appearances. Last year North Carolina lost 38-21 to South Carolina in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

The Ducks (9-3, 7-2 Pac-12) won nine consecutive games following a season-opening blowout loss to the Georgia Bulldogs but lost two of their final three matchups to fall short of the Pac-12 Championship. It was a tough end but a strong Year 1 of the Dan Lanning era as the Ducks qualified for their 36th bowl game in program history. Auburn Tigers transfer Bo Nix had a huge season leading an Oregon offense that ranks fifth in yards per play (6.9) against FBS opponents.
