Mocs Football Preparing For Trip To Knoxville

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team is back on the road in Week 3 to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.  A Noon (E.D.T.) kickoff is set at Neyland Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 14. 

UTC owns the second-toughest schedule in the FCS and follows Saturday’s game with a visit from No. 2 James Madison to Chattanooga on Sept. 21.   

The Mocs are 1-1 after last week’s 41-20 loss at No. 17/18 Jacksonville State. Chattanooga opened the season with a 24-10 win over Eastern Illinois at home on Aug.
29 and is receiving votes in both the AFCA FCS Coaches Poll and the STATS FCS Top 25. 

Tennessee is looking for its first win after dropping its first two games of the season.  The Vols lost to Georgia State 38-30 on Aug. 31.  BYU then scored a 29-26 overtime win in Knoxville last week. 

This is the 41st meeting in the series that dates back to 1904.  The Mocs are 2-36-2 all-time, including wins in 1905 (5-0) and 1958 (14-6).  The ties came in 1909 (0-0) and 1910 (6-6).  This is just the second meeting since 1969.  UTC dropped a 45-10 matchup on Oct. 11, 2014.

The Mocs are facing an opponent from the Southeastern Conference for the seventh time in the last 11 seasons. UTC also faced South Carolina last season, LSU in 2017, Auburn in 2010 and Alabama in 2016, 2013 and 2009.
