4. Legal Sports Betting in Tennessee

Legal sports betting in Tennessee went live on November 1, 2020, as allowed by the Tennessee Sports Gaming Act. This Act allows any person who is twenty-one (21) years of age or older and who is physically located in Tennessee to place a wager in the manner authorized by the Act. However, the Act makes it illegal for any UT student or employee who has access to material non-public information concerning a student athlete or team, which could be relevant to the outcome of a sporting event, to use that information to place a wager on a collegiate sporting event. The Act also provides that it is a crime for any person or entity, “directly or indirectly, to knowingly receive, supply, broadcast, display, or otherwise transmit material non-public information for the purpose of wagering on a sporting event or influencing another person’s or entity’s wager on a sporting event.” Notwithstanding this new law, the NCAA still prohibits sports wagering by all UT student-athletes and athletics department employees.
