UC second scrimmage
has time change to 7
Union City’s home football scrimmage with McKenzie tonight has been moved from 6 until 7.
The change was made to accommodate the school’s back-to-school dinner for teachers.
The scrimmage will be the Tornadoes’ last of the preseason, though they will participate in the Huntingdon Quarterback Club Jamboree Friday night against Bruceton.
UC opens its 2011 campaign with a Saturday night Week 0 game at county-rival Obion Central Aug. 20.
