One ticket provides access to all three events at Tech Saturday

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Fans holding a ticket to either the football or men's basketball game at Tennessee Tech on Saturday just earned a bonus -- a ticket to either event is good for both!

Add in the Ohio Valley Conference volleyball tournament championship match in between, and it provides a FULL day of sports action on the Tech campus.

"Fans can just show us their ticket and we'll give them a ticket to the other event," said Sandy Zimmerman, Tech ticket manager.

The university is gearing up for a busy day.

"Saturday will be a busy, exciting day for Tennessee Tech athletics and Golden Eagle fans," said Mark Wilson, TTU Director of Athletics.

"It starts with the football game against Eastern Illinois, and it's Senior Day. We'll recognize our seven seniors and the game should be a good OVC matchup," Wilson said.

"Tennessee Tech is honored to be hosting the OVC Volleyball Tournament and we hope to see our Golden Eagles playing in the championship match at 5 o'clock," Wilson said. "And, coach Mike Sutton's men's basketball team is off to a 2-0 start and hosts a very challenging team from Southern Utah at 8 p.m.

"Altogether, fans will have the opportunity to see some sensational student-athletes competing and we think it all adds up to a fun-filled and memorable day," he said.

Admission is free to all five of the matches in the OVC Volleyball Tournament, including the championship contest Saturday. Tickets are on sale for both the football and basketball games.

All of the ticketing for the games will be handled through the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center and can be done in advance or on Saturday. The offer is good for both season ticket holders and individual game ticket holders.

Ticket holders may get their additional tickets in advance at the ticket office, or they can present their basketball tickets at the football game to receive a football ticket. If you have a football ticket, just present it Saturday evening at Eblen Center to receive a basketball ticket.
