The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga athletic department is holding an "Under the Weather" promotion today for new football season tickets.
The weather was in the 80s on Thursday, with the low in the 60s. The athletic department will post the "official" temperatures this morning on its Twitter and Facebook accounts. Whatever the official high temperature is will be the price of a reserved season ticket, while the low temperature will be the price of a general-admission season ticket.
The special pricing is only for today.
Normally, general admission costs $75 for a season, while reserved chairback season tickets are priced at $125, so there could be a considerable price slash today.
The Mocs, ranked No. 8 in the nation, have a five-game home schedule, starting with a game against No. 7 Jacksonville State.
Meet the Mocs Sunday
The UTC athletic department is teaming with the Chattanooga Market for a "Meet the Mocs" promotion Sunday at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
All of the Mocs teams, along with mascot Scrappy and the Spirit Squad, will sign autographs and hand out posters and schedule cards throughout the day.
The basketball, women's golf, softball and volleyball teams will sign autographs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The football Mocs will have their official team photo made at 12:30 at Finley Stadium before signing autographs from 1 to 2 with the Spirit Squad. The cross country, track and field, men's golf, tennis and wrestling programs will sign from 2 to 4.
The women's soccer team will open the Gavin McKinney era Sunday at 2 at Finley Stadium against Austin Peay, with free admission.
