Tennessee State Tigers Football TicketsWhen it comes to historically black colleges around the nation, not many carry the success of Tennessee State University. With 16 conference wins and 11 claimed black college national championships, the college is among the most historically successful programs in the US. Under the leadership of a long-time head coach Rod Reed, the Tigers have gone through a few difficulties during the past couple of seasons. Nonetheless, the team remains a very formidable and dangerous opponent to any of its Ohio Valley counterparts. Not to mention that more than 100 football players who have made it to the NFL came from Tennessee State.

Where do the Tennessee State Tigers play?Unlike most college football programs in the US, the Tigers have two different stadiums that have both been accepted as its default home fields. The first one is the Hale Stadium that carries a 10,000-seat capacity and sits right outside of the university's campus. Fully owned by Tennessee State University, it features natural grass. Although most fans do not know this fact, Hale Stadium was not in use for more than a decade as the schools moved from the stadium in 1999. Until 2012, the team never came back to the stadium because it was in extremely bad shape. Once the much-needed renovations took place, the Tigers returned and started playing on the stadium’s field once more. The stadium to which the team relocated in 1999 was the Nissan Stadium. It is certainly the more prominent of the two stadiums as it has a 69,143-seat capacity. The Tigers are also not the only football team to use the stadium as the professional NFL team, the Tennessee Titans, utilize it for home games.
What are the top games this year for the Tennessee State Tigers?The most highly anticipated game is the Southern Heritage Classic that will take place on September 14. The match-up against the Eastern Illinois Panthers will also be an excellent game given that both teams ended with a single-point difference where each team won one and lost one game last season.
Who is the Tennessee State Tigers' head coach?For the past nine years, the Tigers have been under the leadership of Rod Reed. With an overall record of 53 wins and 47 losses, Reed is one of the more successful coaches of the program. His NCCA coaching history dates back to 1991. He began working with the Tennessee State Tigers in 2003 as the defensive coordinator. Having been a linebacker in college himself, he was also the Tigers' linebacker coach during 2003, 2007 and 2009.
