Chattanooga Mocs 2015 Football Schedule Includes Opener With JSU and Road Trip to FSU

The Chattanooga Mocs announced its 2015 football schedule today.  UTC has an 11-game slate set for the fall, including five home contests at Finley Stadium.  The featured road game is a Nov. 21 trip to Florida State.

The Mocs are going for their third-straight Southern Conference Championship, beginning Sept. 5 with a non-conference home game against regional rival Jacksonville State.  The Gamecocks finished 2014 with a 10-2 overall record and a No. 8 national ranking.  UTC is 26-12 all-time against the Gamecocks, but lost in overtime in their meeting last season.

Chattanooga’s other non-conference home game is against Mars Hill on Sept. 12.  Mars Hill is located in Mars Hill, N.C., and is a member of the NCAA Division II South Atlantic Conference.  Other teams in the SAC include Carson-Newman (Jefferson City, Tenn.) and Tusculum (Tenn.). 

UTC opens Southern Conference action the following week at Samford, before visiting Presbyterian on Sept. 26.  Presbyterian was the site of Russ Huesman’s first road trip as head coach of the Mocs on Sept. 19, 2009.  A member of the Big South Conference, the Blue Hose were 6-5 last season, including a 10-7 win over Furman on Sept. 13 and a 19-14 win over Western Carolina on Oct. 4. 

Oct. 3 is the open date, followed by a visit from Furman to Finley Stadium on Oct. 10.  The Mocs spend the next two weeks on the road at VMI (Oct. 17) and at Wofford (Oct. 24), before returning home to face Western Carolina on Halloween (Oct. 31). 

November dates include a trip to Mercer on the 7th, the regular season home finale against The Citadel on the 14th and at FSU on the 21st
