Are you ready for UT’s first game of the season against Utah State on Sunday? Before you make your way to the stadium for the 7:00 p.m. kick-off, make sure to get in the Vol spirit by joining in on some of UT’s most beloved gameday traditions.
The Vol Walk will start at 4:45 p.m. on Volunteer Boulevard near Circle Park, as members of the football team 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 5:20 p.m. from the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center on Volunteer Boulevard and will then follow the same path as the Vol Walk.
The Toyota Volunteer Village commercial display area will be open on the lawn of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building at 3:30 p.m. The Village offers food and pregame festivities for fans of all ages.
Fans also can attend the College of Arts and Sciences’ Pregame Showcase, which is celebrating its twenty-fifth season this year. 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 5:00 p.m., in a presentation titled “Nailing Andrew Jackson: The President and His Papers,” Dan Feller, professor of history, will discuss the Papers of Andrew Jackson project at UT.
New this year, SGA will host its first ever All Vol Tailgate prior to the game. The event is open to all students and will offer free food, music, games, and special guests. The tailgate will take place from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Humanities and Social Sciences Building outdoor amphitheater. Students are asked to bring their VolCard to verify their current student status.
