One of the biggest rivalries in college sport will resume tonight when the University of North Carolina visit Duke.

And usually those fans lucky enough to get inside the arena when these two teams match up has to be willing to pay a small fortune.

But, as reported by ESPN, tickets for tonight's game are the cheapest they have been for at least five years.

Granted, the average for admission to the Dean Smith Arena is still $269, but compared to recent years that is a bargain.

Last year fans paid $402 on average, while in 2012 the asking price was a wallet-emptying $514.

One of the major reasons behind a fall in ticket prices is likely to be the major ice storm currently causing problems in the region - question marks had even been raised earlier in the day as to whether the game would go ahead.

#8 Duke currently hold a 19-5 record whilst North Carolina are 16-7 and currently unranked.

Tar Heels fans who get their hands on the last few remaining tickets, and are able to make it to the venue through the discouraging weather, will be hoping their team can improve on recent results against their rivals - they have lost seven of the last nine meetings.
