College football team without 20 players for Week 0 game, report says

North Carolina’s game against Florida A&M scheduled for Week 0 is in danger of being played.

According to Alison Posey with ABC27 in Tallahassee, Fla., the Rattlers may not be able to travel to face the Tar Heels in Week 0.

Posey cited a conversation with head coach Willie Simmons who said Florida A&M 20 players are currently ineligible for the game due to academics or transfer eligibility.

As it stands, the program only has 7 offensive linemen eligible to make the trip.

Despite those concerns, Posey recently announced that Florida A&M is still traveling to Chapel Hill and taking on North Carolina on Saturday as scheduled.
