Tech Football Team Schedules "Money" Games

The Tennessee Tech football team has scheduled two so-called "money" games this fall. The Golden Eagles will open the year on the road at the University of Arkansas and are now scheduled to play Texas Christian University the following week in Fort Worth. Those larger schools are paying Tech a substantial amount of money to make the trips. TCU finished last year with a 12-and-1 record, losing only in the Fiesta Bowl game. The games this year at Arkansas and TCU will mark the 21st year overall that the Golden Eagles have jumped up a level. Coach Watson Brown says the games will be a "challenge," but also notes that the revenue they produce is important to the University's athletic program.
