Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) The Mocs football team almost got a second play date this fall against Nebraska.
We thought the Mocs were done after playing their fall game Saturday against Western Kentucky. But early this week, Nebraska saw their game with Wisconsin called off because of a COVID out-break on the Badgers team. The Huskers reached out to UTC about playing this weekend. The Mocs did their COVID tests and were good to go to Lincoln, but the Big 10 voted it down Thursday morning.
Said Mocs head coach Rusty Wright:”I think if we could have gotten on a plane last night, we would have went because that’s the thing. I think they were excited about it. Looking forward to it. I was looking forward to it. I’ve never been to Lincoln, Nebraska. Coach Frost called me and said hey, we’re not going to be able to get this done because of the decision the Big 10 made. He was very appreciative of us trying to do it and all that. You know we may try and figure out a way if they’ll let us in the Big 10 South or something I don’t know.”
