The Charlotte Sports Foundation has announced the University of Tennessee and NC State University will play in the 2024 Duke’s Mayo Classic.
The annual college football regular season game will be played on September 7, 2024, at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We are thrilled to host a dynamic regional match up that is within driving distance for these two passionate fan bases,” said Danny Morrison, CSF’s executive director. “Tennessee and NC State have incredible ties to Charlotte and bringing them together to play in Bank of America Stadium is going to be an awesome experience. Games like these don’t happen without an amazing title sponsor like Duke’s Mayo, and the support of the universities and our partners.”
This will be the fourth game between the two institutions since 1911, with Tennessee winning the previous two meetings, including a 35-21 victory in 2012. NC State recently played against Maryland in the 2022 Duke’s Mayo Bowl, and Tennessee faced West Virginia in Charlotte to start the season in 2018.
“We appreciate the Charlotte Sports Foundation and NC State executing a game of this caliber on short notice,” said Tennessee Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White. “This is another terrific opportunity for our football program and Vol Nation to showcase our brand in one of college football’s perennial marquee contests.”
The kickoff time and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
“We are excited to participate in the 2024 Duke’s Mayo Classic,” added NC State Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan. “This is an incredible opportunity for our football program to face a great SEC opponent in our home state. The Charlotte Sports Foundation does a fantastic job and I’m looking forward to an electric atmosphere at Bank of America Stadium.”
