(Nov. 18, 2013) — Tickets have gone on sale for Carson-Newman football’s home playoff game Saturday, Nov. 23 against Newberry at Burke-Tarr Stadium.

Kickoff is set for noon.

Student tickets are three dollars. Bench seats are 10 dollars, while chairback seats are 15 dollars.

The playoff appearance is Carson-Newman’s 24th under Sparks and 25th overall.

C-N defeated the Wolves two weeks ago on senior day 52-31.

The Eagles scored on their first five possessions of that game to build a 35-0 lead before closing with the impressive 52-31 win over the Wolves.

Eagles’ quarterback De’Andre Thomas (Milledgeville, Ga.) was impressive in the game against the Wolves as he went 11-for-17 for 200 yards and a touchdown. Brandon Baker (Miami, Fla.) led the C-N ground game with 140 yards and two scores on 10 carries. The Eagles rushed for 297 yards in the game.

Saturday’s game with Newberry marks the 18th NCAA Division II playoff game played in Jefferson City. The Eagles are 16-1 in playoff games played within the friendly confines of Burke-Tarr Stadium. C-N has outscored its opposition in those home playoff contests 572-383, or an average of 33.63-22.52.

The only loss at Burke-Tarr in the playoffs came in 1997 in the semifinals when the Eagles lost to Northern Colorado 30-29. When you factor in Carson-Newman’s NAIA playoff experience, this will be the 35th postseason contest played at Mossy Creek. In the NAIA days, the Eagles were 14-2-1 in playoff games held in Jeff City, making Carson-Newman a combined 30-3-1 in postseason contests played in either the old or new Burke-Tarr stadiums.

Saturday’s game will be broadcast on the Eagle Sports Network.
