National TV broadcast changes Tech schedule

With the chance to have a national television audience tuning in to the action from Tucker Stadium, the first nationally telecast football game from Cookeville, Tennessee Tech has made two changes to its 2006 football schedule.

The Golden Eagles game against Eastern Kentucky has been moved to Thursday night, Sept. 21, and will be shown on ESPNU. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for two days later, on Saturday, Sept. 23, and now can be seen by millions of football fans across the country.

Meanwhile, Tech's game against Jacksonville State has moved to Saturday, Oct. 28, with kickoff at 1 p.m. It was originally slated for Thursday, Oct. 26.

Mark Wilson, TTU director of athletics, said, "We are very excited about hosting a game on national television. It's an opportunity that we just can't pass up.

"Having our home game on ESPNU will provide national exposure for the entire university, positive exposure that you just can't buy," he said.

The changes in the schedule still give Tech three Thursday night contests in Tucker Stadium in 2006 and two Saturday afternoon games.

"We have had tremendous success with playing on Thursday nights, so we focused on trying to schedule more games on Thursday nights," Wilson said. "At the same time, we wanted to give our fans and student-athletes a couple of traditional Saturday afternoon games, so we made the change back to Saturday for the Jacksonville State game."

All three Thursday night games will be followed by firework shows.

"We have variety in our home games, which we think will make following the team enjoyable and give fans a chance to experience the fun and the excitement of Tech football games," Wilson said.

Tech's first three home games in 2006 are now on Thursday nights. The season opener against Chattanooga on August 31 will have a 7 p.m. kickoff. The second Thursday night game, the team's first Ohio Valley Conference game, is against EKU on September 21.

The third home game slated for a Thursday night is on October 5 against UT-Martin. Kickoff for the game with the Skyhawks is 7 p.m.

The firework shows will be presented 5 minutes after the completion of each Thursday night game.

Tech's two Saturday home games are against Jacksonville State, with a 1 p.m. kickoff on October 28, and Homecoming against Eastern Illinois on November 11, with a 1:30 p.m. kickoff. Starting 30 minutes later allows for the many other of the day's activities, such as the parade and reunion lunches.

Tech's game at Division I-A Middle Tennessee State is also on a Thursday night, with a 6 p.m. kickoff planned on September 14.
