JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. – Texas Roadhouse in Morristown, Tenn. will partner with Carson-Newman athletics to be an official tailgate sponsor for the Eagles in 2019.
As such, the restaurant chain is offering a free student tailgate at three Carson-Newman football games – Sept. 28 v. UVA-Wise, Oct. 12 v. Catawba and Nov. 16 v. Tusculum.
"We're thrilled to partner with a fine establishment such as Texas Roadhouse," Carson-Newman Vice President for Athletics Matt Pope said. "We believe this partnership will elevate our gameday experience while providing a fun atmosphere for Carson-Newman students."
All Carson-Newman students will be able to eat free with a valid student ID inside Burke-Tarr Stadium on those dates. The student tailgates will also feature games and music.
The tailgate will be open 90 minutes before kickoff and close toward the end of the first quarter.
