Sept. 13, 2016: The orange and maroon light bulbs that lit the iconic State Street sign for the Battle at Bristol are now on sale for $10 each.

Bulbs used to light up Bristol's iconic State Street sign for the Battle at Bristol are now on sale.

Crews installed the orange and maroon lights last week for college football's biggest game ever.

The Bristol Chamber of Commerce is now selling the orange Tennessee and maroon Virginia Tech bulbs for $10 each.

“These are the things that were here for a game that was historic in terms of crowd attendance, and we wanted folks to have something else to take away with them other than the memories that they made here,” said Beth Rhinehart, president and CEO of the Bristol Chamber.

The proceeds from the sales will go to education programs in Bristol, Tennessee and Virginia. You can buy the bulbs from the Bristol Chamber’s website
