The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team and women's basketball squad seek regular season championships tonight at home.

Coach Heath Eslinger's wrestlers take on Campbell University in Maclellan Gym at 6 p.m. and a win for the Mocs would give them the outright SoCon regular season title.

The Mocs are 10-6 overall and 6-0 in SoCon matches, while Campbell is 7-9 overall and 5-1 in the SoCon. Campbell is a member of the Southern Conference in wrestling only.

The Lady Mocs are 24-3 overall and 17-1 in league play, while Davidson is 18-9 overall and 15-2 in the SoCon.  A UTC win will clinch the 12th SoCon regular season title in head coach Wes Moore’s 15 years at Chattanooga. 

The Lady Mocs still have to travel to Appalachian State, while Davidson has two additional games left on its schedule.  This is the final home game of the year for UTC. 

Fans who go to the wrestling match can take their ticket stub to the ticket window at McKenzie Arena and get a free ticket to the women’s game against Davidson.
