COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- It will be a special time in Tucker Stadium for all area scouts -- Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts -- and their families as Tennessee Tech hosts "Scout Night" when the Golden Eagles return home to host the Tennessee State Tigers on Saturday, Oct. 15. Kickoff is at 7 p.m., and the Magic 98.5 Tailgate Park opens at 4 p.m.

All youth who are involved in scouting on all levels will be admitted to the game free when they are wearing their scouting uniform or present a scouting ID. In addition to their free admission, all scout familiy members can purchase tickets for just one dollar each. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the game.

All of the scouts in attendance will be invited onto the field for pregame, and will form a special "High-Five" tunnel on the field that the Golden Eagles will run through when they enter the field for the game.

Each scout will also receive a special patch commemorating the day. Each Troop or Pack at the game will also be welcomed with public address announcements.
