“We’re thankful for the opportunity to play in the Quick Lane Bowl and continue our season,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said in a statement. “Detroit is a passionate football city and our team will be excited for the chance to practice and play in an NFL stadium. We will be working hard over the next few weeks to take advantage of this opportunity to finish the season strong.”
Rutgers was 7-5 in 2014, including a 3-5 record in the Big Ten. UNC last faced Rutgers in 2011, a 24-22 Tar Heel win at Kenan Stadium.
UNC Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham: “Playing in the Quick Lane Bowl is an exciting opportunity for our students, coaches and staff. We’re pleased for the chance to continue to practice, and play another game, with a young team as we build to the future.”
The Quick Lane Bowl is Carolina’s 31st all-time bowl game, but first in the state of Michigan. Carolina has won two of its last three bowl games.
