Tickets for Saturday’s game are available at uttix.com. Please be careful about purchasing counterfeit tickets, as all counterfeit tickets will be confiscated at the stadium gates and the patron denied admission.

Game Day Activities

Saturday is also Senior Day, when seniors on the football team will be honored for their contributions as student-athletes. The seniors will run through the “T” and join their families on the field for a special recognition prior to kickoff.

The traditional Vol Walk will start at 10:00 a.m. on Volunteer Boulevard in front of the Torchbearer statue. Members of the football team will proceed down Volunteer Boulevard and then continue down Peyton Manning Pass to the stadium.

The Pride of the Southland Marching Band will begin marching at 10:35 a.m. at the intersection of Pat Head Summitt Street and Volunteer Boulevard and will then follow the same path as the Vol Walk.

Fans also can attend the College of Arts and Sciences Pregame Showcase. Held two hours before each home game kickoff in the University Center Ballroom, the showcase is a free thirty-minute presentation by a UT faculty member. This week, at 10:21 a.m., history professor Jay Rubenstein will present a short summary of his recent book, Armies of Heaven: The First Crusade and the Quest for Apocalypse.
