No university in the country can boast of a better marching band. The Pride has long been a staple of tradition and pride on the UT Campus. The band has appeared at over 40 bowl games including the Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, Citrus Bowl, Sun Bowl, Hall of Fame Bowl and the 1998 National Championship Fiesta Bowl. In 2007, the "Pride of the Southland" marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. The band has also represented the state of Tennessee in the last twelve consecutive Presidential inaugurations, a record unmatched by any civilian organization ...and the 300 member band is ready for the 2010 Football season!
