The Tennessee Vols could make fans in Nashville happy — and less hungry — if they score at least 30 points in the Music City Bowl on December 30 against Purdue.
If Tennessee reaches 30 points against the Boilermakers, then fans can go to The Pancake Pantry and get a free stack of pancakes by using the keyword “VolsPancakes”.
The Pancake Pantry has two locations in Nashville. The Hillsboro Village location has been serving 23 varieties of pancakes for 60 years. And earlier this month, a brand new downtown location opened at 220 Molloy Street at 3rd Avenue (adjacent to the Centric Hyatt Hotel)
(Both locations are open daily from 6 AM – 3 PM serving breakfast and lunch.)
Tennessee is averaging 38.8 points per game this season. The Vols failed to score at least 30 points just four times this season (all of those games were losses for UT).
Purdue is only giving up 20 points per game this season. The Tennessee offense, however, will be the second-best scoring offense that Purdue has faced this year (The Boilermakers gave up 59 points earlier this season to Ohio State, the program with the No. 1 scoring offense in the country).
I’m not saying that free pancakes are a lock for the Vols, but I’d be extremely surprised if Vol fans aren’t lining up for a free stack of pancakes on Friday morning.
Of course, Vols fans can still start their day at The Pancake Pantry on Thursday before the tailgating fun begins. The Pancake Pantry’s downtown location is just a 15-minute walk from Nissan Stadium.
Pancakes, tailgating, and Tennessee football. It’s hard to imagine a better day.
If you’re not going to the game on Thursday, make sure to check out the A to Z Sports’ interactive live stream of the Music City Bowl with former Vols quarterback Jonathan Crompton and Big Orange Podcast host Charlie Burris.
Crompton and Burris will be broadcasting for the duration of the game. You can check out the live stream starting on Thursday at 2:00 PM CT/3:00 PM ET on the A to Z Sports social media channels and/or the A to Z Sports YouTube page.
