Each pre-game event begins three hours before kickoff, and is conveniently located to the stadiums at each away game. There will be tailgate-style food available, along with plenty of Rocky Top and fun for the entire family. Included will be the first-ever ROCKY TOP SING-OFF, with prizes given to the best rendition at each tour stop. A grand prize will be awarded at season's end.
In addition, participants can look forward to listening to the UT Pride of the Southland Band, cheerleaders and a special appearance by Smokey. There's even face painting.
UT merchandise and game-specific spirit buttons will be available, as well as door-prize drawings throughout the event.
All participants who pre-register for a tailgate tour stop will be automatically entered into a drawing for two post-season bowl tickets. The drawing will occur at the end of the season.
The cost is $15 for adults and $8 for children ages 3-12.
