Two more kickoffs set

Tennessee announced Tuesday the kickoff times for a pair of non-conference games at Neyland Stadium.

The Vols host Northern Illinois on Oct. 4 in a 7 p.m. kickoff and Wyoming on Nov. 8 for a 1 p.m. start. Both games are being televised through the VideoSeat pay-per-view service.

UT's game against Northern Illinois is the first football meeting between the two programs. The Huskies open 2008 under new head coach Jerry Kill.

Wyoming has played Tennessee twice, both times in the Volunteer State. The Vols won a 42-17 decision in Knoxville to open 1999, and then defeated the Cowboys 47-7 in Nashville for the 2002 season opener.

Other game times set for this year are Sept. 1 at UCLA (8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific, ESPN) and Sept. 13 at home against UAB (12:30 p.m. Eastern, Raycom). The SEC Championship Game on Dec. 6 in Atlanta kicks off at 4 p.m. Eastern (CBS).
