Mocs Host In-State Foe Austin Peay

Saturday, September 14, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team looks to make it two in a row when it hosts fellow Tennessee university Austin Peay Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) at Finley Stadium.

Chattanooga evened its record at 1-1 with last week’s convincing 42-14 win at FBS-opponent Georgia State.  It was UTC’s first win over an upper-division program since 1984.

  APSU is 0-2, but both losses were to teams from the Southeastern Conference.  The Govs fell to Tennessee (45-0) in the opening week and lost to Vanderbilt (38-3) on Saturday. 

The Mocs Sports Network broadcasts the game on ESPN Radio 105.1 The Zone in Chattanooga.  Jim Reynolds is in his 34th year as the play-by-play Voice of the Mocs.  Todd Agne has provided the color commentary for the past 17 years, while Will Poindexter is back as the sideline reporter.  A free audio stream of the game is available through MocsVision on GoMocs.com.  MocsVision live video is also available on GoMocs.com. 

The Austin Peay game is tabbed as Social Media Night at UTC.  Fans are encouraged to take to their favorite social media platforms and promote the game all week long.  Use the hashtag #GoMocs for the opportunity to participate in contests on and off the field, request songs for the pregame playlist and much more.
