Small Football Ticket Problem Quickly Corrected On

(WVLT) - Here's a case of it was definitely too good to be true...

A computer glitch this morning within the University Of Tennessee's online ticketing system allowed a few dozen folks to reserve premium football tickets, including 50-yard-line seats, inside Neyland Stadium for pretty-much any fall football game.

The school's ticket office quickly recognized the problem, and personally called all those who bought tickets and told them they would be crediting back their credit cards for the amounts wrongly charged, according to Tennessee's Athletic Marketing & Public Relations Office.

It'll be the middle of the summer before Tennessee puts its available single-game football tickets on-sale through

We'll pass that information along to you when those tickets become available for purchase.
