U-T Tyler SignTYLER — For the second straight year, the University of Texas at Tyler 2013 Patriot Classic posted a record. Patriot Classic volunteers presented the university with a check for $200,269.69 to benefit the UT Tyler scholarship program. This is the largest amount raised in the fundraisers 27-year history.
