BRISTOL (WATE) – One group of football fans managed to be at the Pilot Flying J Battle at Bristol announcement three years ago. That was the day they decided to make reservations for their camping spot.
The Olivers reserved their spot at Lakeview RV Park back in October 2013. “We worried there would be a lot of University of Tennessee RV’ers here at the park. So we thought, well we’re here. We’ll go ahead, we’re committing to it,” said Carol Oliver.
Other friends have committed to going to the game on Saturday as well. As their dream becomes a reality, the Olivers counting down to kick-off.
“We’re excited. It oughta be a good game. Hope it’ll be a close game,” said Oliver.
But the age old question still stands, was it worth it? “Well if we win the game then yeah, it was worth the wait,” said Oliver.
