The Buccaneers defense will get its shot at a young quarterback right away when the Titans send Jake Locker to lead the huddles against Tampa on Friday. Locker gets the start, further testing the quarterback battle between the second-year player and elder statesman Matt Hasselbeck.
Of course, with the Bucs not able to sell enough tickets for Friday's game to have it televised locally, there's a blackout for about a 100-mile radius of Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. In a nutshell, the Bucs need more than just season ticket holders to buy tickets. Maybe a casual fan or two.
Anyway, take a look at the game schedule and broadcast information right here:
Date/Time: Friday, August 17, 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Raymond James Stadium - Tampa, FL
Radio: Sirius 93
