For the first time since the McCallie and Baylor rising
seniors were probably too young to spell f-o-o-t-b-a-l-l, the 2014 McCallie-Baylor
football game (Fri. Oct. 3) will be played at McCallie’s Spears Stadium.
McCallie football coach Ralph Potter wants a true home game.
The Blue Tornado players are excited to play Baylor on campus.
“The players are excited about playing the game on campus
and playing the Baylor game every other year at Finley Stadium was nice, but it
wasn’t a true home game,” said coach Potter.
Having the game back on campus, allows alums one more activity to attend on campus during Reunion Weekend.
The oldest football rivalry in the state - first game played and won by McCallie in 1905 - has had the game
played at various locations in Chattanooga, including Spears Stadium and Alumni
Field (at McCallie), Rike Field and Heywood Stadium (at Baylor), Finley
Stadium, Chamberlain Field and Andrews Field.
