Chattanooga, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - The NCAA has granted a medical waver to University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior defensive tackle Derrick Lott for a sixth year of eligibility next year.
Lott started the first four games for the Mocs before an elbow injury at Georgia Southern ended his season. A preseason All-Southern Conference first- team selection, Lott had 17 tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss.
As a junior last year, the transfer from Georgia earned All-SoCon second-team honors.
Chattanooga finished 8-4 this season under coach Russ Huesman.
