That will be the scene when the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's pep band appears on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," which will air at 12:30 a.m. tomorrow.

The pep band received its invitation after Mr. Fallon threw his weight behind the Mocs as his favored underdog team in this week's NCAA basketball tournament. He has given UTC a generous amount of national airtime each night this week.
