JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 13, 2022) – After earning its first conference win of the 2022 season last week, ETSU football will look to keep the momentum rolling as it heads to Macon, Ga. for a meeting with No. 11 Mercer on Saturday, Oct. 15.

Before Saturday’s showdown, here are the Top Things to Know brought to you by Citizens Bank. 

No. 1 – Kickoff: Kickoff for Saturday’s game is set for 4 p.m. at Mercer’s Five Star Stadium.

No. 2 – Broadcast Information: The Buccaneer Sports Network (BSN) will provide ETSU fans with complete pregame, in-game and postgame coverage on the Bucs’ flagship station WXSM-AM 640 and affiliate station 104.9 FM NASH ICON.

BSN begins its pregame programing one hour and 30 minutes prior to kickoff with the 30-minute Tennessee Lottery Tailgate Show, followed by the George Quarles Pregame Show presented by Tommie’s Plumbing which will lead up to 30 minutes prior to kickoff. The Appalachian Orthopedic Countdown to Kickoff will then lead into the final moments before kickoff.     

The broadcast team of “Voice of the Bucs” Jay Sandos, color analyst Mark Hutsell, sideline reporter Jessica Larkin and stat-man Don Helman will provide ETSU fans all the information they need to complement their game-day activities.

At halftime, the crew will have the Mr. Electric Halftime Show, while fans can tune into the Mullican Flooring Post Game Show for a full wrap up, with game statistics, players and coach interviews and other post-game information.

No. 5 – Series History: Saturday will mark just the eighth meeting between the conference rivals — taking place every year since 2015. ETSU leads the all-time series 4-3. The Bucs have won four of the last five meetings with the only loss coming in the shortened Spring 2021 season. Last year’s meeting was a de facto title match, as No. 8 ETSU defeated No. 21 Mercer 38-35 to clinch the Southern Conference championship.
