The North Carolina Tar Heels will face the UCLA Bruins in the 2019 CBS Sports Classic, it was announced on Thursday. The sixth annual event will take place in Las Vegas on Dec. 21, 2019.
Kentucky and Ohio State will square off in the other matchup. The last time North Carolina played a CBS Sports Classic game in Las Vegas, it lost a 103-100 overtime thriller against Kentucky. The Tar Heels topped the Buckeyes in last year’s event.
North Carolina will face Kentucky in Chicago in 2018 in what should be another entertaining battle of the bluebloods. The Tar Heels continue to schedule aggressively out of the ACC.
