Football will once again kick off at East Tennessee State University.

Friday, the Tennessee Board of Regents approved a new fee for students to fund the program. The new fee, which was easily passed by the board, will charge ETSU students $125 a semester.

The first game is anticipated in the fall of 2015.

It's likely the program will cost about $4.9 million a year, and bring in about $4.5 million.

A lot of details are still up in the air, such as conference affiliation, fundraising goals, and where to take the field.
