The Chattanooga Mocs have declared a WHITEOUT for the 2014 football home opener against Jacksonville State on Saturday, Sept. 6, at Finley Stadium. White-on-white uniforms, plenty of giveaways and WHITEOUT T-shirts are sure to enhance an exciting showdown against the sixth-ranked Gamecocks.
Fans are encouraged to wear white to the game, or pick up one of the thousands of free white T-shirts at the gate.
Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) as the Mocs bring their highest preseason ranking ever into the contest. Chattanooga checks in at No. 14 in the Sports Network top-25 and No. 16 in the FCS Coaches Poll. The Jacksonville State game marks just the fourth time two ranked teams have met at Finley Stadium in the regular season.
This is the second time in four seasons JSU carries a top-10 ranking to the Scenic City. The Gamecocks were No. 10 in the country when No. 23 UTC posted a 38-17 win on Sept. 10, 2011.
Be on the lookout in the downtown area for the Blue & Gold Train. Scrappy and the Mocs will be all over Chattanooga handing out WHITEOUT items from now until kickoff on Sept. 6. Also, make plans for the downtown pep rally at Miller Plaza at Noon on Friday, Sept. 5.
