ATHENS, Ohio -- The Ohio IMG Sports Network takes you on the trip to Tennessee with Ohio football starting tonight from 6-7 p.m. EST with Bobcat Roadtrip Live.
The Bobcats (1-0) are set to take on Virginia (1-1) on Saturday (Sept. 15) at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, Tenn. The contest was originally scheduled to played at Virginia's Scott Stadium in Charlottesvile, Va. The venue change was made due to the threat of severe weather in the Charlottesville area associated with Hurricane Florence and to provide emergency personnel with the ability to focus on the needs of the region's citizens throughout the weekend. The radio broadcast of the game can still be heard on the Ohio IMG Sports Network.
Russ Eisenstein, who is in his 11th season as "Voice of the Bobcats", and longtime analyst and Ohio Alum Rob Cornelius broadcast live from Vanderbilt Stadium to breakdown the matchup with Virginia. You'll hear from Ohio Director of Athletics Jim Schaus, 14th-year head coach Frank Solich, redshirt junior quarterback Quinton Maxwell (Rayville, Mo.) and junior quarterback Nathan Rourke (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) as well as a recap of the 38-32 season-opening win over Howard on Sept. 1 at Peden Stadium and a preview of Saturday's matchup against the Cavaliers.
The show airs on flagship station Power 105 (WXTQ 105.5 FM) in southeast Ohio, OhioBobcats.com, Tunein.com/ohiobobcats and the Tunein app.
"Most importantly, we hope everyone in the path of Hurricane Florence stays safe," said Eisenstein. "It's a tough situation for Virginia and their fans to deal with, but we look forward to seeing them in Nashville. If we can offer a bit of entertainment on Thursday night, that's a great thing. These special shows allow listeners to experience the trip with us."
Network pregame begins on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST, with the kickoff at 4:30. Follow @OhioBobcats and @RussEisenstein on Twitter for additional broadcast pieces and pictures from the road.
