NCAA Football: Georgia State at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

From what we’ve seen and heard, a lot of y’all are headed to Knoxville, TN to see the Cougars take on the Volunteers Sat. evening. If you’re wondering what to do while you’re there, this article is for you. ‘Along the Trail’ is a piece that will give suggestions of what to eat and what to do for all of BYU’s away games (that we can find someone to contribute for us)! Huge thanks to Dillon Bunn for helping us out this week. He went to the University of Tennessee. Here are his suggestions (click the link for exact addresses and more info):

Things to do:

  1. Sunsphere.Right next to UT campus is a beautiful park and location of the 1982 World’s Fair! It has beautiful lakes and an impressive golden sphere in the middle.”
  2. Ijams Nature Center. “Just a few miles from campus is a vast forest/nature center/hiking trails. This is a great place to go for some outdoor activities, including kayaking!
