Due to the possibility of inclement weather or football’s need to use the indoor football facility for bowl preparation, the schedule for Saturday may change. For example, we may need to have the observing stations prior to lunch and sessions 5-8 following lunch.

If you need a hotel room, we have secured discounted rooms at the Downtown Knoxville Marriott. Click on the “General Information” Tab for information on these rooms.
