Jacksonville Jaguars fans are invited to TIAA Bank Field this Sunday afternoon to see the Jaguars in their first AFC South division matchup of the season against the Tennessee Titans. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. on CBS and will be broadcast locally on WJAX CBS47. Tickets are still available for as little as $39. Fans can visit www.jaguars.com or call (904) 633-2000 to secure their seats for the divisional showdown.
THE FIRST DUUUVAL
Last week, Jaguars legend Tony Boselli kicked off the team's all new game day tradition, the first "DUUUVAL." For the team's second consecutive home game, former RB Fred Taylor, another Pride of the Jaguars member, will climb atop the flag pole tower moments before kickoff and lead the crowd in the fan-favorite chant. Immediately following the coin toss, fans can direct their attention to the southeast corner of TIAA Bank Field where Taylor will shout the first "DUUUVAL" of the game before the crowd echoes their response, letting the Titans know exactly where they are this weekend. The first "DUUUVAL" is presented by Duval Motor Company.
Following team introductions, the colors will be presented by the U.S. Marines Corp. The national anthem will be performed by 47 members of the Jacksonville Children's Chorus, with sign language interpretation by Brooke Page. Following the anthem, a flyover will be performed by two P-8A Poseidons from Patrol Squadron Thirty of Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Two American field flags will be displayed by local high school football players who will also participate in the halftime competition to win $500 towards their high school athletic department.
During the first quarter, the Jaguars will honor retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Thomas McMorrow, a veteran of the Vietnam War who served more than 20 years including time with the 82nd Airborne Division and the 173rd Airbone Brigade in Okinawa. McMorrow and his wife have been Jaguars season ticket members since the inaugural season in 1995. The SunPass® Hometown Hero will be recognized in the second quarter. This week's honoree is Officer Ryan Devane, a member of the Jacksonville Sherriff's Office since 2009 and an active duty member of the United States Air Force 920th Rescue Wing. The First Data Veteran-Owned Business of the Game, honored in the third quarter, is Murray Hill's own Town Beer Co., represented by its owner, former U.S. Navy member Alex Moldovan. As we enter the 4th quarter, the Navy Mutual Bell Ringer of the game is Petty Officer 2nd Class Edward Vail, a logistics specialist at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. New this season, most military recognitions will be located at the all-new Camp Grunt Style, a military-inspired environment open to all fans on the north deck at TIAA Bank Field.
