As the Football Mocs do battle at home and away, they are proud of Head Football Coach Rodney Allison, whose collegiate achievements earned him one of the highest honors a former football player can receive: he was named the All-Time Quarterback for Texas Tech football. Allison played for the Red Raiders from 1974-77 and was rated as the No. 2 overall high school talent in Texas behind a running back named Earl Campbell following his senior year of high school. Allison’s career highlight was in 1976 when he came off the bench as a junior to lead the Red Raiders to a 10-2 record and a share of the Southwest Conference title. He threw for 1,458 yards and rushed for another 850 in leading Tech to as high as a No. 5 ranking in the polls, which is still the highest the Red Raiders have ever been ranked. Go MOCS!

The Chattanooga Lady Mocs Volleyball Team has begins the new season with freshman Ellie Kuhn leading several offensive categories, and senior libero Lara Newberry chasing the NCAA’s all-time record in digs. See the full volleyball schedule here.
Despite losing by a 5-0 deficit, Chattanooga Lady Mocs Soccer Team head coach J.D. Kzyer saw reason for optimism when the UTC team recently fell to the 13th-ranked Lady Vols at the North River Soccer Complex. “Five-0 is never good,” Kyzer said. “But to play as well as we did was good. It was 3-0 at halftime and they didn’t break down our defense to score.” Kyzer was also pleased with the turnout at the event—more than 1,000 fans wore gold and cheered for the team. Plan to join the crowd at the next soccer match--see the full schedule here.
Returning to the lineup for the Lady Mocs Cross Country team this season will be All-Conference runners Katie Williams, Sabrina Lefort and Shelley Taylor. Williams was sixth at the 2007 SoCon championship while Taylor placed 10th. Lefort, a two-time All-Conference athlete in cross country, redshirted last season and will be a strong asset to the field along with sophomore Tara Gietema. The men return SoCon Freshman of the Year Chris Berry along with Kevin Huwe, David Moore and Blake Ketron. Head Coach Bill Gautier added SIAC Most Valuable Runner and NCAA Divison II South Region Champion Emmanuel Kirwa to his roster this season. See the full cross country schedule here.

Six returning seniors and impressive young talent bring excitement to the Mocs Basketball 2008-09 season, beginning this November. Two season ticket plans are being offered to meet the needs of Mocs fans of all ages.
Season tickets are available for all 15 home games including the Dr Pepper Classic. There is no increase in ticket prices this season as lower-level reserved tickets cost $175 ($100 for staff), while upper-level general admission cost $100 ($50 for staff and alumni).
Also available this season is the Mocs Mini-Plan, which includes seven of the Mocs most exciting games for just $70. The plan includes Davidson, both nights of the Dr Pepper Classic, Furman, Western Carolina, UNC Greensboro and new SoCon member Samford. The ticket is in the lower-level non-donation seating area and provides a small popcorn and small Coke product at each contest.
A UTC Mocs Club donation is required for portions of the arena; however, 78 percent of the arena does not require a donation for seating, including 30 percent of the lower level. The season ticket plans do not include this year’s Southern Conference Championship played at McKenzie Arena, although season ticket holders receive priority in purchasing tickets for the SoCon Championship.
Tickets can be purchased at the McKenzie Arena Box office, or by calling 266-MOCS. Fans can even go online at GoMocs.com for their ticketing needs.
