The school's sports teams are called the Tar Heels, and the mascot is Rameses the ram. They participate in the NCAA's Division I-A and in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The team nickname is "Tar Heels", a reference to the state's volunteer soldiers who fought on the side of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, although one legend dates this name as far back as the American Revolution. The mascot is a live ram named Rameses, a tradition that dates back to 1924, when the team manager brought a ram to the annual game against VMI, inspired by the play of former football player Jack "The Battering Ram" Merrit. The kicker rubbed its head for good luck before a game-winning field goal, and the ram stayed. There is also an anthropomorphic ram mascot who appears at all games.
