No. Except for maybe the Battlefield seats, every seat in the place will be terrible.

I think the yellow seats would be pretty good--worth paying up to $140 for at least.


They appear to be at least 25 yards away from the field and not parallel to the field. That seems terrible especially as you get lower.

No seat at this thing will be worth paying $140 for, unless it is in a luxury suite with free food and booze.

It's Butch Jones's Tennessee vs. Beamer-less VaTech. I wouldn't pay $30 for a ticket.*

I kid, but seriously.

Seems like you go to this thing for the novelty and to get wasted and watch it on the jumbotron. I predict multiple fatalities.

Someone was telling me that Daytona was trying to get FSU/Alabama, but they are playing at the new Falcons stadium instead.

Tickets are cheaper for the Bristol Motor Speedway tilt between East Tennessee State and Western Carolina.

LDOTL, are you planning to go?


LDOTL, do you have me on mute?

I found a pic taken from approximately where my seats will be. Not too terrible:

I'm cautiously optimistic that I will actually get to see some football and - aided by binoculars - understand what is taking place.

Nice. Let me know. You have about 7 months to come up with an excuse for bailing on Bristol(TN)Con16.

Doubtful - I think that's the big donor tailgate area. They can play around it.

Good look at Virginia Tech's new uniforms. Tapered white outlining on helmet stripe is simple but very effective.

For some reason, I completely missed this. What the hell is the rationale for playing at Bristol? And whose idea was it?

From Wikipedia:

In 2005, track owner Bruton Smith made a public offer of $20 million apiece to the University of Tennessee (UT) and Virginia Tech to schedule a non-conference college football game between the powerhouse Vols and Hokies' programs. Smith suggested that grass could be grown in the infield section of the racetrack. Virginia Tech showed much interest and nearly agreed to the proposal, but UT, on the other hand, showed little or no interest and in fact avoided the offer which made this possibility ultimately fall by the wayside.

On October 14, 2013, after years of attempts to schedule a game, Virginia Tech, UT, and Bristol Motor Speedway announced plans for the game to be held on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Organizers envision attendance for the non-conference game, dubbed the Battle at Bristol, College Football's Biggest EVER, to draw 150,000 spectators, which would surpass the current NCAA record for highest single-game attendance of 115,109. Bristol Motor Speedway's location near the Virginia/Tennessee state line places the game about 125 miles (201 km) from the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia and about 110 miles (180 km) from the UT campus in Knoxville.

On November 24, 2015, Knoxville-based Pilot Flying J signed on to be the title sponsor of the game, giving it the official name Pilot Flying J Battle At Bristol.
