With overall season ticket sales in steep decline, the Iowa Hawkeyes are offering students an enticing deal to try and get more fans in the stands this year at football games.
According to the Associated Press, the school is offering to give five random students a year's worth of free tuition by simply purchasing season tickets for the upcoming campaign.
The AP has more:
The move is designed to boost a sharp decline in student sales since 2012. The Hawkeyes have seen those numbers drop from 10,000 to roughly 7,000 in less than two years, and any unsold season tickets allotted to students will be made to the general public as well on Friday.
Iowa says the free tuition package is worth roughly $8,000. The award can also be used to cover fees, books and related supplies for the upcoming fall and spring semesters.
This sounds like an awesome bargain to me. Even if you buy season tickets and aren't selected as one of the five students to receive free tuition, you're still soaking in the college experience by watching Big Ten football.
