KNOXVILLE (WATE) - In only four days the University of Tennessee Vols will take the field at Neyland Stadium.     

If you want to see how well head coach Butch Jones does in his first game, there are still tickets to the game available.     

Neyland Stadium can seat 102,000 people. UT officials say their goal is to fill each seat at every game.

"If you have looked at what Butch Jones has done to fire up the Big Orange fan base," said UT assistant athletic director Jimmy Delaney, "I think we are expecting great things."    

Delaney says fans have many options for buying tickets.

"There's three mini-plans," explained Delaney. "The Orange and White, you can choose Georgia or South Carolina, and two other games of your choice. Austin Peay could be one of those. We also have the Rocky Top package which is choose three of five games."

UT has a new option for people to buy tickets in an attempt to fill even more seats called flex ticket pricing.

UT's flex ticket pricing gives fans a cheaper option in the south upper deck. For Saturday's game those tickets are at the base price of $20, while for other games the prices will change according to demand.

"It's a great affordable way for our fans to come watch the game," said Delaney.

Fans we spoke with Tuesday say they are always looking for a bargain.

"I do look for good deals," said UT fan Paige McClany. "I look on Ebay, Craigslist."

"Initially I'll look at stuff, StubHub a little bit, and call some friends around," said UT fan Mike Andress. "This year the three game ticket package seems to be a pretty good deal." 

UT officials say the best way to avoid a scam is to always purchase tickets through them.    

Season tickets are also still available.     

They will be on sale through the Austin Peay game.

The ticket booth for Saturday's game will open four hours before the game starts.
