Coffee Pot Game is Friday

Voted as one of the top rivalries in the state of Tennessee, the 93rd meeting on the gridiron between Tullahoma and Coffee County is a mere hours away.  Befitting the aged rivalry, an old bronze pot on a wooden pedestal awaits the winner of Friday night’s Coffee Pot game at Wilkins Stadium in Tullahoma.  Originally conceived in 1937 to be awarded to the winner, the Coffee Pot symbolizes bragging rights for the winning team, fans and community for a calendar year.

In spite of the fact that Tullahoma has dominated the series in the last 31 years(winning 25 of the last 31 meetings); the Red Raiders have won 2 of the last 3 contests in blowout fashion.  Tullahoma rallied from a 28 to 7 halftime deficit in 2017 to break the modest Raider winning streak.  Overall, Tullahoma owns a 59 to 31 series advantage with 2 ties.

Friday night’s game will be heard exclusively here on Thunder Radio with Lucky Knott calling his 22nd Coffee Pot match-up.  Lucky and Dustin Murray will bring you all the action from Wilkins Stadium in Tullahoma beginning at 6:45 on Friday night.  Kickoff is set for 7 PM and Thunder Radio will have live coverage beginning at 6 PM and after game until 11 PM with Friday Night Thunder.
