The 2014 Chattanooga Mocs football team represented the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in the 2014 NCAA Division I FCS football season as a member of the Southern Conference (SoCon). The Mocs were led by sixth year head coach and alum Russ Huesman and played their home games at Finley Stadium in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 2014 was a historic season for the Mocs.[2] The Mocs won ten games in a season for the first time in program history, won the SoCon Conference outright for the first time in program history, went undefeated in the SoCon for the first time in program history, and went to the playoffs for the first time since 1984, netting a number eight seed and a first-round bye.[3][4] Chattanooga advanced to the quarterfinals, beating Indiana State at home for the program's first-ever home playoff win in the playoffs' second round before falling to New Hampshire 30–35.
