Season opener Thursday to finish with fireworks over Tucker Stadium

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- For the eighth consecutive year, Tennessee Tech's home football night games in Tucker Stadium will end with a bang...literally.

The Golden Eagles opening game against Hampton University on Thursday night will conclude with fireworks over the stadium, sponsored by the TTU Athletics Association.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m., so the fireworks will flash and blaze approximately 10 p.m. There will be fireworks (weather permitting) following all four of Tech's night games in 2012.
