Tennessee unveiled details for the Orange & White Game at Neyland Stadium on April 20, the first spring exhibition of the Butch Jones’ era.
Admission to the game is free and tickets are not required. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2:05 p.m. Parking is free.
Fans also will be able to get autographs from Jones, assistant coaches and players from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. UT said fans will be allowed to start forming a line at 7 a.m. at Gate 7. The gate will open at 11 a.m.
Fans are allowed one autograph per player or coach and players will be grouped by position. Jones will be seated at the north end zone.
UT said the cheer and dance teams and Smokey would also be available for photos and autographs — or in Smokey’s case, perhaps paw prints.
For non-autograph seekers, the main stadium gates open at 12:30 p.m. UT said a tent would be set up for fans to buy official “Rise to the Top” T-shirts on the east sideline at the 50-yard line
The game will be broadcast on many, but not all of the Vol Network radio stations. The game will be streamed live on ESPN3.com, but will not be seen on television until it is rebroadcast by ESPNU. The date of the rebroadcast has not been announced.
Tennessee is promoting the game with a photo of a silhouetted Jones walking through a tunnel at Neyland Stadium. The tag line reads: “He’ll Be There. Will You?”
