WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - On February 27, the United States Marine Corps was on-site at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum for the Wake Forest vs. North Carolina game. Prior to the game, Demon Deacon fans competed against the Tar Heel fan base in the Marines Chin-Up Challenge.

When the total chin-ups for each fan base were tallied, Deacon fans emerged victorious. During the second-half of Saturday's game, The Deacon represented Wake Forest fans as he was presented the Chin-Up Challenge trophy by a United States Marine Corps officer.

Saturday's victory marked the second Chin-Up Challenge win for the Deacon fan base this season. Wake Forest supporters defeated Terrapin fans in the Chin-Up Challenge prior to the January 12, Wake Forest vs. Maryland game.
