Night Games Featured On Tech Football Schedule

The lights will be burning bright at Tucker Stadium this fall as four of Tennessee Tech’s five home games in 2010 will be played in the evening. The Golden Eagles open their home slate with a couple of Thursday night contests, hosting Lane College on Sept. 16 in a non-conference game and UT Martin on Sept. 30 in an OVC game. Both of those contests will kickoff at 7 pm. Tech’s first Saturday game against defending OVC champion Eastern Illinois on Oct. 16, will also be played in the evening with a 7 pm starting time. The only afternoon home contest of the season will be Homecoming. That’s slated for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, Nov. 13, against Eastern Kentucky. The regular season finale is against Jacksonville State on Saturday, Nov. 20. Originally an afternoon contest, the game has been selected for the OVC TV Game of the Week and kickoff has been moved to 6 pm.
