Mocs Travel to Florida State in November

While UTC head football coach is focused on the upcoming season and a key home opener with Jacksonville State (Sept. 5), he also knows the importance of confirming solid, attractive schedules for the near future.

 UTC travels to 2013 national champion Florida State in November to close out the 2015 regular season, and already has a pair of Southeastern Conference foes - Alabama (2016) and Kentucky (2018) – under contract and is waiting for the official word from a third SEC school for 2017.

“Playing BCS conference teams is important to us as far as recruiting and of course it helps with our budget” said Huesman.

“It’s a great recruiting tool to tell high school players that we play some of the top schools in the southeast.”

Florida State and Alabama will play UTC $500,000 each and Kentucky will pay $450,000.

In coach Huesman’s first six seasons as head coach, the Mocs have played Alabama (2009, 2013), Auburn (2010), Nebraska (2011), South Florida (2012), Georgia State (2013), Central Michigan (2014) and Tennessee (2014).

UTC has played at least one FBS school a year since 2001 and played Oklahoma and Florida State in 2008, Georgia State and Alabama in 2013 and Central Michigan and Tennessee in 2014.

Florida State – leads the UTC series, 2-0

Alabama – is 12-0 vs.

UTC
