KNOXVILLE — Tennessee has announced that athletic director Dave Hart and football coach Butch Jones will attend a press conference Monday at Bristol Motor Speedway.
A person familiar with situation says that Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play a football game at the Bristol speedway in September 2016. The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the game hasn’t officially been announced.
Virginia Tech athletic director Jim Weaver said in a telephone interview Wednesday night that he and Hokies coach Frank Beamer would attend the Monday press conference at Bristol. Tennessee announced Thursday that Hart and Jones would be in Bristol on Monday as well.
Bristol is located about halfway between the two campuses on Interstate 81.
