Big Orange Tailgate Stops In Lexington Saturday

KNOXVILLE — The final stop in the Tennessee Alumni Association Big Orange Tailgate Tour will be Saturday, Nov. 29, in Lexington, Ky., before the UT-Kentucky football game.

The “Food, Fun and Rocky Top” party will be from 9-11:30 a.m. just outside the visitor entrance to Commonwealth Stadium at the corner of University and Alumni Drive. Kick-off is set for 12:30 p.m.

Brunch will cost $15 for adults and $8 for UT students and children ages 3-12. Fans may pay at the game, but those who prepay will be entered to win a Phillip Fulmer autographed football and two tickets for the upcoming Tennessee bowl game.

University of Tennessee alumnus and former Vol quarterback Andy Kelly will be on hand to greet fans and sign autographs. The band, cheerleaders and Smokey will also be part of the festivities.

The final round of the Rocky Top National Sing Off will be held. Contestants will sing Rocky Top and the crowd will choose a winner by level of applause. Prizes will be given to each contestant, and the first place winner will qualify for the grand prize drawing, two tickets to the UT bowl game.

Kids games, a football toss and door prizes every 15 minutes are scheduled.

The event is hosted by the Tennessee Alumni Association and is sponsored by Hounddogs, CSS and Bank One.
