The Battle of the Blues

Posted by Discover Durham Staff on Feb 1, 2019 5:14:24 PM

This rivalry pounds in the veins of residents across the country, let alone 277 zip codes. Even if you live far outside of the boundaries of Durham/Orange County, you'd better figure out which blue you bleed, and quick.

The rivalry between the Duke University Blue Devils and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Tar Heels has permeated all types of playing fields, courts, pitches, and stadiums for decades. It's why students huddle together for warmth in makeshift tents outside Cameron Indoor Stadium, taking shifts to take showers. It's only during the sweet winter months, however, that we get to see it all play out on the unforgiving hardwood.

People try to joke about it to relieve the inescapable, palpable tension — but it's real. We're not the only ones who acknowledge these tales as far more than those of lore. This history has been told, retold, dissected, and argued for quite some time, and will continue to be for seasons to come. 

Relive the rivalry's storied history, and then pick your side. Every year, every game is sure to be a wild ride; you may as well experience it first hand in the Bull City.
