Tennessee Announces Orange Out for Alabama Game
The Tennessee Volunteers will have an "Orange Out," for its game against Alabama on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn.
The idea started when a Tennessee fan posted the suggestion on Twitter on Sunday morning. The tweet went viral and even caught the attention of the athletic director for Tennessee, Danny White.
"Isn’t everyday in Tennessee an Orange - Out?!," said White.
Another fan chimed in and said he needed to make it official, which White did on Monday morning via Twitter.
The Volunteers official football Twitter account confirmed the Orange Out with a photo that says "Orange Out-- Third Saturday in October," with a caption that tells fans to wear orange.
This is the second time that a Crimson Tide opponent colored out a stadium this season as Arkansas made a "red out" for its game against Alabama on Oct.1.
No. 3 Alabama takes on No. 6 Tennessee on Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Coverage will be on Tide 100.9 and 95.3 The Bear.
