Last fall I took out a second mortgage to buy game tickets to watch Auburn vs. TAMU at A&M. Alright, I’m exaggerating…..a little. Let’s just say that if you added up my fuel expenses, food and beverage expenses, and price of our tickets, I could have paid for Christmas. Oh, and that was paying face value for my tickets, not scalper rates. You know what, it was totally worth it! There’s no substitute for the atmosphere of gameday inside a stadium, especially an SEC football game.
As we left Kyle Field with a win, I looked for ways to attend more games. This season I looked at the 2014 Auburn Football schedule, and saw three games I’d love to see in person: Auburn vs. South Carolina, Texas A&M at Auburn, or the ultimate game, The Iron Bowl. Hmmm…do I sell a kidney? Stand on the street corner with a clever sign, and hope I earn enough for one game ticket?
Nah, instead I decided to search for contests and sweepstakes with chances to win tickets to college football games. That’s how I discovered the Verizon Ticket Touchdown Sweepstakes. You can enter once per day for a chance to win tickets to one of these games:
