COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Residents of neighboring Jackson and Overton Counties are invited to take advantage of a special, one dollar ticket offer when Tennessee Tech hosts an Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader Saturday evening in Eblen Center.
The Golden Eagles host Belmont, with the women's game tipping off at 5:30 p.m. and the men's contest to follow at 7:30 p.m. The ticket office and gates in Eblen Center open at 4:30 p.m.
It's Jackson County and Overton County Night, and residents of those two counties can purchase tickets at the game for just one dollar per person.
Earlier this year, Tech hosted Cumberland County and White County Night at an OVC doubleheader. Residents of Putnam County were treated to one special discount night in December for an OVC women's game, and a second Putnam County Night at a men's game in January.
Each of those previous County Nights drew good turnouts from those counties.
For each of the special discounted County Nights, fans can purchase tickets at the Eblen Center Ticket Office on the day of the game. For additional informtation, please call the ticket office at (931) 372-3940.
