Mocs Athletics Host 'Swag Swap' Thursday

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs Athletics Department is hosting a ‘Swag Swap’ on the UTC campus on Thursday, Oct. 24.  Students, faculty, staff and fans are encouraged to trade in gear from other schools for a variety of Mocs athletics swag.

Look for the UTC Spirit Squad, along with the Goodwill truck taking away the old gear, beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the heart of campus at Heritage Plaza.  Bring gear from any college or University, including Tennessee, Alabama or Georgia, and trade it in for the ‘Power C.’  There are even a few hats available for the first takers.

The Mocs will be trading gear until 1:00 p.m.  If all of the Chattanooga swag is gone before 1:00 p.m., the UTC Bookstore will offer 25% off coupons for anyone still wanting to upgrade to the Blue & Gold.

With the students coming off of Fall Break on Monday and Tuesday, the ‘Swag Swap’ is a great way to get the campus and community revved up for a big home football game this weekend.  UTC hosts The Citadel on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 2:00 p.m. at Finley Stadium. 

Ticket are on sale now on GoMocs.com or by calling the UTC Ticket Office at (423) 266-MOCS.  Admission is always FREE for UTC students, as is parking while space is available
