Toledo coach Matt Campbell writes letter to students offering incentives for game attendance

Dr. Saturday

Toledo has won seven of its last eight games and welcomes undefeated Northern Illinois to the Glass Bowl Wednesday night. With Heisman candidate Jordan Lynch and the ESPN cameras in the house, this is undoubtedly the biggest game of the year for the Rockets, and coach Matt Campbell is doing all he can to pack the Toledo student section.

Campbell, who is in his second full year as Toledo (7-3, 5-1 MAC) head coach and is the second youngest FBS coach in the country, wrote a letter to Toledo students offering incentives for game attendance.

To all University of Toledo students,

This Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m., we play our most important game of the season thus far, a nationally televised battle with undefeated Northern Illinois. The Mid-American Conference West Division title is on the line, so we need every one of you to come out to fill the Glass Bowl and show the country your Rocket Pride! As you know, UT students get in the games for free with a student ID. Also, we’re going to give every UT student free thunder sticks, a free cup of hot chocolate and free hand-warmers to keep your Rocket fire burning hot. It’s our way of saying thanks to some of the greatest fans in the Mid-American Conference!

And since we are on national TV, don’t forget to bring your signs! UT students who bring signs will get a chance to win great prizes like iPads, a trip with our football team to an away game and $100 gift cards to Rocky’s Locker.

This is a huge game for our team and for our University. You can help us by coming out and cheering us on to victory!

See you at the Game! Go Rockets!

Head Coach Matt Campbell

Free tickets, free hot chocolate and the chance to win an iPad sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
