Rocky Top Tennessee - The UT Football Experience
November 30, 2011 8:28 AM by Erin Donovan
As the leaves begin to turn beautiful shades of orange in East Tennessee, so do the color of peoples’ wardrobe in preparation for football time in Tennessee. The change in seasons from the hot summer months to the pleasant cool fall air makes the perfect backdrop for the Vol nation to come out for games every Saturday. From the Vol Navy on the Tennessee River to the swarms of students, alumni and University of Tennessee fans tailgating on campus, there is nothing like dressing up in your orange and white and making your way to Neyland Stadium for the game. Make sure to get down near the stadium before kick-off for the well known Vol Walk and show your support as the University of Tennessee team makes their way to Neyland Stadium walking through the crowd of fans! Experience one of the largest football stadiums in the nation by getting a snapshot of the Vols mascot Smokey and sing along as the Pride of the Southland Marching Band plays tunes throughout the game. Whether you have been a Volunteer fan your whole life or are in town for a visit and want to experience a game for the first time, any University of Tennessee football game will be a once in a lifetime experience and will have you leaving the stadium shouting Rocky Top.
