Texas, North Carolina to Play Basketball -- In Jerry's World

Texas is in negotiations with North Carolina for a 4-game series, that would start with a game Jerry Jones' new stadium in Arlington.

The series would be set up where two games would be played at major sites off campus for each school and then have a another game on each others campus.

Jones is bidding for future Final Fours, and obviously this game would be a great showcase to see how it plays in Jerry World. The first game would be in December of 2009.

North Carolina is a consensus pre-season #1 for this year while Texas is ranked in the Top Ten is several pre-season polls and as high as #5. Both are also considered to have top recruiting classes for 2009.

This season Rick Barnes has put together a very competitive non-conference schedule. Texas plays in the Maui Invitational, where they could face Notre Dame in a semifinal and then possibly North Carolina in the final. The home game schedule has games against UCLA and Michigan State and there is a road trip to Wisconsin.
