Mocs Expect Another Dog Fight With Citadel in Home Finale


Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) The Chattanooga Mocs play their home finale Saturday afternoon  as they host the Citadel. This rivalry seems to go down to the wire every year. Last year receiver Bryce Nunnelly threw a pass for the winning two points in overtime as UTC won 29-28. Seven of the last eight meetings between these teams have been one score games, and it sounds like Saturday could be another dog-fight.

Said head coach Rusty Wright:”They’re rolling. 4-0 the last four games. Got a Power 5 win. Doesn’t happen much at our level. Georgia Tech. Beat them earlier this season. They played a good Towson team to open the year up. So they are feeling pretty good. Had a week off. So we will get some new wrinkles. It’ll be a challenge for us on Saturday to go out there and perform well and see if we can get it done.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
