KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The University of Tennessee announced today that its Athletic Department and Admissions Office have partnered on a unique promotion. The Vols host the Buffalo Bulls at Neyland Stadium this Saturday at 12:30 p.m., and because of Fall Break, many UT students will not be in town to attend the game. As a result, UTAD and the Admissions Office are offering $10 student tickets to all 18-and-under students.
"This is an opportunity to reach an audience that we hope will comprise the next generation of University of Tennessee students and introduce them to one of our great Tennessee traditions, which is a fall Saturday in Neyland Stadium," said Connie Harmon, senior associate director for undergraduate admissions at UT.
The Admissions Office is communicating directly with local schools and will provide them with a convenient method to order tickets online. Students can then utilize the new digital ticketing technology installed at Neyland Stadium this season that allows purchasers to print their tickets at home. Adults will be able to purchase guest tickets at the normal rate of $40.
"We have the best student fans in the nation, and the Buffalo game presents an opportunity to reach out to potential future UT students and introduce them to the one-of-a-kind experience offered at a Tennessee football game," said Tennessee senior associate athletic director Chris Fuller. "We are grateful to the Admissions Office and Student Affairs Office for working with us to make this happen."
For more information, students can also contact the UT Ticket Office at 1-800-332-VOLS or (865) 656-1200.
