NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Despite all the changes around the tri-cities and the grandeur of Battle at Bristol, the Tennessee Volunteers are sticking with their Rocky Top roots when it comes to game day gear.

Tennessee will hit the field in their traditional orange and white uniforms.

Athletic Director Dave Hart said the decision was simple. He wants people to remember the rich history and tradition of Vol country.

UT made the announcement after Virginia Tech revealed they will rock a new “Hokie Stone” look on game day in gray and black uniforms.

News 2 will broadcast the Battle at Bristol game Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. CST. Click here for full coverage of the Battle at Bristol.
