The University of Tennessee and CheckerNeyland.com announced earlier this year that the Tennessee vs. Florida game had been selected as the game to Checker Neyland. This selection process included a fan vote in which fans could vote for which home game they wanted to see Neyland Stadium transform into a scene unrivaled in college sports. The final tally of the vote was in favor of the Florida game just ahead of the Alabama game in 2nd. Finally the long awaited last Saturday in September has arrived, an already sold-out crowd will be on hand for the classic SEC east rivalry game. Here is a diagram Tweeted out by the official Checker Neyland Twitter account detailing which color fans should wear in each section:
