The Mocs went through a 23-period session in helmets. Rain started falling shortly after practice began and made for a sloppy afternoon. There were some expected miscues as UTC transitions out of the passing attack of the B.J. Coleman era to the spread offense they are expected to run in the fall.
UTC will be back on the field on Saturday at 7:45 a.m. (E.D.T.). All practices are open to the public and fans are encouraged to make the short trek down the Tennessee Riverwalk to check out the latest addition of the Mocs. A full camp schedule is available here.
The season starts with a Sept. 1 trip to South Florida. Kick-off is 7:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) against the Bulls and the game will broadcast on ESPN3. The home opener is Thursday, Sept. 13, at 7:00 p.m. against Glenville State. Season tickets are on sale now by calling the UTC Ticket Office at (423) 266-MOCS (6627) or on GoMocs.com.
