The TTU Athletics Caravans have evolved over time to become one of the most popular summer traditions enjoyed by Golden Eagle fans across the region. Donning several different monikers over the years, typically to represent the theme of the Athletics Department, the 2017 edition has been labeled as the Wings Up Caravans.
What exactly are the Wings Up Caravans? Each summer, Tech Athletics hits the road to spread excitement and information for the upcoming seasons for all 14 of the department's programs, making several stops all over the region. In 2017, the Wings Up Caravans will visit 10 different locations. The events span the months of July and August this season.
Sponsored by 98.5 KISS FM, Pepsi and TTUsports.com, every caravan will run from 5 p.m. to 6:38 p.m. Each event features a tailgate atmosphere with free hot dogs and soft drinks. Prizes and giveaways will also be held at each event, including registration for a grand prize drawing at the end of the caravan slate for a prize package that includes a pair of season tickets for Tennessee Tech football and basketball, a TTU Pride Package, a pair of tickets to a concert to be determined and a pair of tickets to the Ohio Valley Conference basketball tournament in Evansville, Ind.
The grand prize registration will be conducted by 98.5 KISS FM – the broadcast home of Golden Eagle football – and the winner will be announced at the final caravan stop on Aug. 29 at the Algood Walmart.
Note: No winner will be selected below the age of 18. Winner may not be a high school student-athlete or immediate family member of an athlete without jeopardizing collegiate eligibility at an NCAA institution. Complete rules for the contest can be found at the Kissfm985.com website.
