People across the country love their particular football team, but here in East Tennessee, we loves our Vols just a little (ok, a LOT) more than the Average Joe. If you’re planning on heading to a University of Tennessee football game this fall, you’ll need the schedule and some great game day tips.
Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
University of Tennessee Football Schedule + Game Day Tips
Game Day Tickets
Be sure to grab your game day tix for the game you’re most excited to see this season. Whether you want to see the Vols take on the Hokies, the Bobcats, the Tigers, the Gators, or the Wildcats, be sure to get prime real estate for your game of choice by getting your tickets early.
If you don’t like walking, you can get to the stadium as early as 7am and get a close parking spot. If you don’t mind a little walk, the parking lots available further from the stadium tend to be a little less expensive. You can also use this website to guarantee you a spot, even weeks in advance.

Go Big Orange!
Don’t forget that wearing orange in Tennessee is absolutely normal and completely necessary. The best hometown store to get your gear is HoundDogs. You’ll definitely want to check out their selection.
Know What You Can Bring
As of August 2016, what is allowed in the stadium has changed to be one gallon ziploc bag per attendee and a small clutch purse. To make sure you’re not throwing something out at the door, read the whole list of regulations before game day.

Where to stay for the Big Game?
You’re going to be on your feet, cheering on the Vols from start to finish. So you want to stay someplace that will completely pamper you with amazing beds, great breakfast, a spa – the works. And the crowd is great for the game but when it’s finished, a little peace and quiet does the body good. We invite you come stay with us at the Whitestone Country Inn. Just a short drive from downtown Knoxville, you’ll be able to rest and prep for a long day of cheering on the Vols, then rest and revive before heading back to work on Monday.
