CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) --The UTC Mocs had plans to practice at 6pm Sunday night at Finley Stadium but Mother Nature had another idea.



The threat of lightning kept the Mocs indoors and sky watching, hoping the clouds and the threat of lightning would diminish.                                                       

"You know, its been doing this all day today so we just got to wait it out and when it clears out, we go but the good thing is they don't have school tomorrow so if we gotta stay here till midnight we'll be here til midnight," said Mocs Head Coach Russ Huesman.

The Mocs prepare for Jacksonville State Saturday night at Finley Stadium.

Both teams are looking for their first win of the season, with the Mocs losing 20-16 to Central Michigan Thursday night and the Gamecocks losing to Michigan State in East Lansing.

Saturday has been declared UTC's "Whiteout" game, meaning fans are encouraged to wear white to the game or pick up one of the thousands of free white t-shirts at the gate.


Kickoff is set for 6pm Saturday.
