The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team is back on the road this weekend, visiting No. 15 Georgia Southern.  The Mocs open Southern Conference action against the Eagles on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro, Ga.  Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m.

The Mocs are off to a 2-1 start, including consecutive wins over Georgia State (42-14) and Austin Peay (42-10).  UTC lost its season opener to UT-Martin (21-31) on Aug. 29. 

Georgia Southern is 2-1 overall, with wins against Savannah State (77-9) and St. Francis (Pa.) (59-17).  The Eagles are 0-1 in SoCon action after dropping their league opener to No. 10 Wofford (20-30) on Sept. 14 in Spartanburg.
