Expectations are high for the 2013 edition of the UTC football Mocs, and fans will get their first chance to see them tonight, Aug. 29, at Finley Stadium against the UT-Martin Skyhawks. If you can't make it to the game, there are several options for watching or listening in.
Coach Russ Huesman, in his fifth year, has a team full of returning starters, including local products in his son, quarterback Jacob Huesman, linebacker Gunner Miller from East Ridge High School, Keon Williams from Red Bank, Kevin Revis from Rhea County, Synjen Herron from Northwest Whitfield and Terrell Robinson from South Pittsburg High School. Robinson has moved from QB to wide receiver but may line up under center as well.
The game will be televised on CSS with kickoff at 7:37 p.m. Jim Reynolds will be doing play by play, Scott "Quake" McMahen will provide color and Keith Cawley will be on the sidelines.
The game also will be on the radio on ESPN 105.1 FM with Todd Agne, Wells Guthrie and Will Poindexter calling the action. Poindexter is the son of US101 legend Bill "Dex" Poindexter.
