KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — If you’re among the 107,000 fans expected for Saturday’s Tennessee-Florida football game, you might consider arriving early enough to take in the annual Big Orange tailgate party.

It’s held in Circle Park, a block west of Neyland Stadium, from noon to 2:30 p.m. The game begins at 3:30 p.m.

UT officials said there will be free food cooked on site, a UT pep band, a bluegrass band, and the Vol cheerleaders.

The menu includes chicken wings, roast pork loin, fruit, vegetables, roast beef, catfish, cheese, ice cream and cold drinks.

The tailgate party is sponsored by the UT Institute of Agriculture and UT’s office of university relations.
