Fans gathering team apparel ahead of Saturday's big game

Seven year old Nicole Vanderwerf is excited about her new Tigers t-shirt. Carol Gillespie is excited too about hers.

Janet Crossnoe could care less what her boss thinks as she buys her Tigers flag.

"My boss is a UT fan and so he is always saying you should sing Rocky Top when you're exercising and I said no, no...I'm going to sing "Go Tigers Go," Crossnoe said.

Roy Pentecost could probably sing Rocky Top. He spent a few bucks buying a Vols jersey.

Greg and India Blatt are the owners of the Tennessee Sports Zone in Cordova.

They have had a nice, steady flow of Tiger fans and Vol fans buying hats, shirts, pins, magnets, pom poms or whatever. Business has been "very good."

The Blatt's just made Denise Hunt's day. The store gave away two tickets to the game in a drawing. Hunt was the lucky winner.

"Do you know where you're sitting?  Um, not exactly but I don't care I'm going to get to go to the game," Hunt said.
