Extreme heat has pushed back the start of Friday’s 98th renewal of the Coffee Pot Rivalry between Coffee County Central and the Tullahoma Wildcat football teams.
Coffee County athletic department announced Thursday morning that Friday’s start would be delayed by 30 minutes. This means kickoff will now be at 7:30 p.m. at Carden-Jarrell Field.
It is important to note that gates to the stadium will not open until 6 p.m.
This is the 98th meeting between the Wildcats and Raiders. Coffee County currently has possession of the Coffee Pot after winning 35-14 last year.
There are multiple ways to secure tickets for Friday’s game.
*Tickets will be available at the gate for $10 cash
*Tickets can be purchased in advance at the CHS main office (100 Red Raider Dr.) between 8 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. through Thursday of this week (not on Friday).

*Paper tickets must go through ticket booth (middle entrance at booth building).
*Go Fan ticket holders can enter at any gate – pass gate (far left), ticket booth or the extra gate (near the visitor bleachers).
