KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Thousands of Volunteer football fans will miss out on the usual gameday experience this season in Neyland Stadium, but UT has come up with a way to make up for it.
They're launching the Vol Access Gameday Pass to bring the sights and sounds of a gameday to your computer or smartphone. It will include behind-the-scenes features, streams and exclusive footage.
It will be available for all 10 UT football games this fall, and will be free for the South Carolina game. After that, it will cost $4.99 per game, or the whole season for $40.
For the game against the Gamecocks, you can relive the 2014 road win with VFL and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joshua Dobbs, view the best of the best big plays from the series and catch up on footage from fall camp.
Fans must register HERE before Friday, Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. ET to receive free access to the Gameday Pass for the South Carolina game.
Pass content is available for viewing on a smart device, computer browser (excluding Internet Explorer) or tablet. Pass holders also can broadcast to a TV from a cast.
