The Rivalry

The UNC vs Kansas rivalry is one of the fiercest in college basketball. The two teams have met a total of 205 times, with UNC leading the series 130-75. The most recent meeting was in 2019, when UNC won 73-65.

The History of the Rivalry

In college basketball, there are a few rivalries that stand out above the rest. The UNC-Kansas rivalry is one of them. These two storied programs have been going at it for over 100 years, and the competition between them is as intense as ever.

The UNC-Kansas rivalry dates back to when the two programs first started playing each other in 1913. Since then, they have met a total of 31 times, with UNC holding a slight lead in the all-time series 16-15. In recent years, the rivalry has really heated up, as the two teams have met in the NCAA Tournament four times since 2008. UNC has won three of those matchups, including a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the 2017 Elite Eight.

There is no love lost between these two programs, and every time they take the court against each other, you can expect a hard-fought battle. So when do UNC and Kansas play next? The answer is: we don’t know. The two teams are not scheduled to meet in the regular season for the foreseeable future. However, with both programs being regulars in the NCAA Tournament, it’s always possible that they could meet up again in March Madness.

The Current Rivalry

As of 2019, the two teams have met 194 times on the hardwood, with Kansas owning a 108-86 lead in the all-time series. They’ve met every year since 2005, and will continue their annual matchup through at least 2025. The Tar Heels and Jayhawks last played each other on March 3, 2019, a contest won handily by North Carolina, 82-56.

In recent years, the rivalry has been largely one-sided in Kansas’ favor. The Jayhawks have won 14 of the last 15 meetings dating back to 2005, including eight straight from 2008 to 2015. North Carolina finally broke that streak with a home win in 2016, but Kansas has won the three meetings since then.

The Schedule

The Jayhawks and Tar Heels have a storied history dating back to the early 1900s, but have only faced each other 11 times since 1950.

When Does UNC Play Kansas?

The Tar Heels are set to take on the Jayhawks on Saturday, November 10th at 8:00 PM EST.

The Future of the Rivalry

No one can say for certain what the future holds for the UNC-Kansas rivalry. While it is clear that the two programs have a mutual respect for one another, there is no guarantee that they will continue to schedule games against each other on a regular basis. With conference realignment always looming in the college basketball landscape, there is a possibility that the two teams could eventually end up in different conferences and only play each other once every few years.

However, as long as there are fans of both UNC and Kansas who want to see the two teams play each other, there is a good chance that the rivalry will continue. Even if the two teams are in different conferences, they could still agree to play each other every year or every other year. The bottom line is that as long as both UNC and Kansas basketball are relevant programs on the national stage, there will likely be games between them.

The Fans

The game is set to take place on March 3rd at 8:15 PM. It will be held in the Smith Center in Chapel Hill, NC. This will be the first time these two teams have played each other in over a decade.
