"On Saturday, they'll be two of the 26 ex-high school teammates from across the state who will become rivals when the Tar Heels (0-3 overall, 0-1 ACC) and the Wolfpack (2-2, 0-1) meet for the 93rd time. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh."

"Edge was UNC's starting quarterback for the 1962, '63 seasons. He directed the Tar Heels to a 9-2 record, a share of the Atlantic Coast Conference championship and a win against Air Force in the Gator Bowl as a senior in 1963."

"North Carolina was 3-9 last season and is 0-3 this season. After Saturday's game at N.C. State, there is a reasonable chance the Tar Heels will be 0-4 with Virginia, Arizona State, Clemson, Maryland, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech still to play."
