Vols headed to Music City Bowl vs UNC

AP SPORTS -- A North Carolina team whose season was overshadowed by an NCAA investigation will meet a Tennessee squad in the midst of a rebuilding effort under a new coach in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn., on Dec. 30.

It's also game between two teams that were scheduled to meet at North Carolina during the 2011 season and at Tennessee in 2012, until Volunteers officials decided to pay a $750,000 buyout of the series contract with the Tar Heels.

North Carolina (7-5) finished third in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division after a season that had the NCAA looking into agent-related benefits and academic misconduct.

Tennessee (6-6) finished third in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division in the Vols' first season under coach Derek Dooley, their third coach in as many seasons.
