"The fan support shown over the past several months continues to impress the new coaching staff," said men's athletic director Mike Hamilton. "Fans Day and the DISH Network Orange and White Game are great opportunities for fans to continue showing their support while getting a glimpse of what to expect this fall."
Fans Day begin at 10:30 a.m. at Haslam Field. Gates open at 9:45 a.m. along the Pat Head Summitt Street entrance. Stadium gates open at 12:30 p.m., with kickoff scheduled for 2 o'clock.
The Big Orange Upgrade Vol Packs are now available and include one Orange and White game ticket, one Adidas sack pack and one spring football POWER TEE shirt. The shirt design was voted on by fans and includes the 2010 football season slogan, "All Your Might."
The Big Orange Upgrade Vol Pack is $15.00 and can be purchased at uttix.com.
Students are admitted free to the game with a valid UT ID. Students must enter through Gate 23. Because of construction around Gate 21, there will not be a Vol Walk before this year's spring game.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio is carrying the Vol Network broadcast on Sirius "Best of XM" Channel 216 or XM Channel 200.
