CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- No. 12 North Carolina has moved its Saturday night game against Notre Dame to Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Greensboro, due to a water shortage in Chapel Hill.

The university canceled classes at 1 p.m. Friday after the town of Chapel Hill declared a state of emergency. Students on campus were told not to use water for drinking or for personal use after a water main broke earlier in the day.

In an email to The Associated Press, team spokesman Steve Kirschner said the Tar Heels would spend Friday night in Durham, home of the rival Duke Blue Devils.
