CHATTANOOGA, Tenn --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga travels to Lincoln, Neb., to open the season September 3 at traditional-power Nebraska. The game time was set today at 3:30 p.m. (ET).
The two teams will meet for the first time. Not only is it Chattanooga's first foray against a Big 10 opponent, it will be the Cornhuskers' first game as a Big 10 institution. It will be televised with the network to be determined.
This is the latest in the Mocs' BCS tour in recent years. UTC has faced Arkansas (2007), Oklahoma (2008), Florida State (2008), Alabama (2009) and Auburn (2010). These matchups have developed a couple of interesting notes.
Chattanooga has met the last two eventual FBS Champions in Alabama and Auburn. The last three Heisman winners matched up with Mocs defenders in their trophy seasons in Sam Bradford, Mark Ingram and Cam Newton.GoMocs.com is the official website of the Chattanooga Mocs.
