A slightly edited and updated version of a continuing series of articles posted on covering the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and their practice of prayer before football games.

In recent weeks UT was asked to change its policy of allowing a prayer before its football games. UT's chancellor responded by saying it was a constitutional practice and therefore they would not stop.
