The Detroit News

Two Eastern Michigan students could win a year’s free tuition at Thursday night’s home game against Western Michigan.

The drawing is open to fulltime students in good academic standing with no conduct issues.

Students also must attend Tailgate Town, the student tailgate from 4:30-7 p.m., then attend the game to be eligible. They also have to download the My Eagle Rewards smartphone app.

Contestants will be randomly chosen, but anyone wearing apparel from another school is disqualified.

The contestants will get to select a Swoop mascot who will toss footballs into a container for 60 seconds. The two with the most footballs win the year’s tuition.
