In-state college rivalries can have a certain edge to them. 

The Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama splits households down the middle every fall, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State’s rivalry gets so crazy, that it is known as “Bedlam,” and apparently, the rivalry between North Carolina and North Carolina State is alive and well.

On Tuesday, North Carolina freshman quarterback Drake Maye took a lighthearted jab at N.C. State, fanning the flames of the rivalry. 


Maye was asked about Carolina’s former quarterback, Sam Howell, who also chose to stay in-state and play for the Tar Heels.
