Chattanooga is one of more than 200 schools across the nation participating in this campaign focused on allowing youth the opportunity to attend college football games. The Take A Kid to the Game program is entering into its 17th year in the promotion of collegiate athletics.
"Part of the mission of UTC is to be an engaged, metropolitan University," stated Interim Director of Athletics Laura Herron. "I can't think of a better way to be engaged with our community than to encourage young fans to come out and support the Mocs. This is a huge game for us this weekend and we need the stands full of Blue & Gold, so grab the kids and come out for a fun night of college football."
The Mocs are 4-3 overall and one of three teams in the Southern Conference with just one loss (3-1). Georgia Southern is ranked No. 2 in the nation at 6-1 overall and leads the SoCon with a 5-1 league mark.
The TAKG promotion is only good on gameday at Finley Stadium. The box office at the First Tennessee Pavilion opens at Noon (E.D.T.) with all other ticket windows at Finley Stadium opening at 3:00 p.m.
The Take A Kid to the Game program is one of the national promotions of NCAA Football, the marketing arm of college football.
