UTC Football Opens Winter/Spring Season With Wofford

Most Host Terriers Saturday At Noon

Friday, February 26, 2021
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team kicks off the Winter/Spring 2021 schedule with a visit from No. 11 Wofford this weekend.  The Mocs host the Terriers at Finley Stadium on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 12:00 p.m. (E.S.T.).
 
Immediate families on the home and visiting pass lists are the only spectators allowed for this event.  Fans can check the full broadcast on ESPN+ or the radio call on the Mocs Sports Network flagship station 97.7 FM/1070 AM WFLI. 
 
It has been 462 days since the Mocs competed in a Southern Conference football game.  UTC played in one game in the fall, a 13-10 loss at Western Kentucky on Oct.
24.  This is the first of seven spring games for Chattanooga, all in league play.  The Mocs had to postponed their scheduled spring opener on Feb. 20 against VMI due to COVID-19 issues within the program.
 
Wofford is No. 11 in this week's STATS PERFORM FCS Top 25.  The Terriers opened the spring with a 31-14 win over Mercer in Spartanburg last weekend.  The league's coaches picked Wofford first in the SoCon preseason poll, while the media pegged them to finish second.
 
Only immediate family on the pre-arranged pass lists from both teams are allowed admission for this game.  There are no ticket sales for the general public.  Tickets for the Mocs' home games on March 27 against Mercer and April 10 against Samford go on sale on March 1 on GoMocs.com.
 
The Mocs Sports Network broadcasts the game on the radio on WFLI 1070 AM / 97.7 FM in Chattanooga.  Jim Reynolds has the play-by-play for his 41st season, with Todd Agne giving the color commentary and Will Poindexter on the sideline.  A link for a free audio broadcast is available on the football schedule page on GoMocs.com.
