Tennessee adds home-and-home series with Pac-12 squad to future schedules
Tennessee has made an interesting addition to its future nonconference schedules.
On Wednesday, the Vols announced on Twitter that they’d finalized a home-and-home series with the Washington Huskies to take place during the 2029 and 2030 seasons.
The first game will be played at Neyland Stadium on Sept. 1, 2029, and in Seattle at Husky Stadium on Sept. 7, 2030:
“We are thrilled about scheduling a high-caliber Pac-12 program like Washington,” Tennessee Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White said in a statement. “These schools offer fans the chance to experience two very unique venues on the water in great cities. We appreciate Jennifer Cohen and the University of Washington administration in collaborating with us on this endeavor.”
Per the release, this is an interesting series for fans of boating:
The sites are two of only three on-campus college football stadiums where fans can arrive by boat with Baylor’s McLane Stadium being the other. Both Neyland Stadium and Husky Stadium offer over 100 years of tradition-rich history. Husky Stadium opened to the public on Nov. 27, 1920, while Neyland Stadium, Shields-Watkins Field followed one year later on Sept. 24, 1921.
It should be a fun series between 2 strong programs. Now, we just have to wait 7.5 more years for the first game of the series to officially kick off.
