BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Campbell head coach Steve Armas will be a guest on 99.9 FM The Fan's weekly Saturday morning radio show, Back of the Net with Charlie Slagle.

The fourth-year Camel coach will appear during the show that runs from 7:00-8:00 a.m. this Saturday (Sept. 21).

Fans outside the 99.9 FM coverage area may listen on-line at espntriangle.com.

Facing one of the toughest schedules in the nation, the Camels stand 1-0 in the Big South Conference and 1-4 overall.  Most recently, Armas' squad pushed the country's top-ranked team -- North Carolina -- to overtime Tuesday in Buies Creek before falling 1-0 on a deflected shot in the 97th minute.

Over the last two years, Campbell owns a 2-3 record against Atlantic Coast Conference schools and is 2-3-1 vs. nationally-ranked teams.

Tuesday's match marked the first time since 2002 that the Tar Heels earned a victory in Buies Creek after losing shutout decisions to the Camels in 2006 and 2008.  It also was the closest contest Campbell has ever played against a top-ranked school.

CU is now 0-5 all-time vs. the nation's top-ranked teams, including a pair of 2-0 losses at No.-1 Duke in 1983 and 1996.

The challenging slate continues Saturday when Campbell (1-4) travels to 28th-ranked Charlotte (2-2-1) for a 7:00 p.m. kick-off.
