The Chattanooga Mocs spring football season kicks off Saturday at noon against Wofford.
It’s the first of seven scheduled games against SoCon opponents for UTC.
The Terriers are always one of the tougher teams in the SoCon. Chattanooga lost the last meeting 35-34 on a failed two point conversion in overtime.
Now Wofford won their spring opener against Mercer last week 31-14. The Terriers traditionally are a ground oriented team, but it appears they may be breaking with tradition.
Said head coach Rusty Wright:”I think they ran for about 200 yards Saturday and threw it for about 170 yards Saturday. So they’ve changed a little bit about what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to evolve that offense and spread you out a little more and do some things.”
Added linebacker Ty Boeck:”I think last year when we played them or two years ago. I think we made a lot of mistakes that really cost us that game. And I think it was more of if we cut down on those mistakes, we’ll come out with a victory.”
Said Wright:”Been a long time since we’ve won a football game, so it will be good for us to get out there and get going and see what’s happening.”
