TAMPA, JAN. 11, 2017 – In an effort to demonstrate its deep appreciation for supporting Bulls football, USF Athletics randomly selected four season ticket members, who had perfect attendance over the past two seasons, and gave them the surprise of a lifetime.

As a reward for years of dedication, USF provided tickets to Monday’s national championship game to the lucky Bulls fans, who each got to bring a guest to watch No. 1 Alabama take on No. 2 Clemson at Raymond James Stadium.

That's really cool. I would have flipped the tickets and made out like a bandit though.

Now that is smart marketing.  Way to go USF.   I would recommend that be used for other things as well.

Although that would have been bad form, I would probably do the same.

Winning tickets would have been the only way I would have gone to that game. Wife would go bananas if I spent that type of cash for tickets.

I would have been in full BULLS gear and held a sign "BULL STRONG!!!". When someone asked me who I was cheering for, I'd say the camera and GET MY NATION WIDE BULLS LOVE ON!!!!! :GoBulls:

I bet they had to agree not to sell the tickets.

Would have kinda seemed a little ungrateful not to go IMO. I get the $$ angle but it would be like after winning a fan's choice award, step up to the podium and say, "I'll start the bidding at $1200, do I hear 15? 15?"

Wow. I work with Karen and knew she was going to the game but never asked her how she got the tickets!

I wasn't saying they should have sold them...just thought it was a possiblity they couldn't resell the tickets. I think it's awesome usf is rewarding fans. I think they should do more to encourage people to use their tickets to all games. Maybe stuff like sideline passes, suite for a game etc.

Not all basketball fans translate to football fans. I'm sure they wanted to make sure it was someone who would really enjoy the game. Besides, anyone with perfect attendance for MBB deserves USF's equivalent to the Medal of Honor. or maybe...

In the case of the Sheffields, I believe they hold season tickets to men's and women's basketball.  Maybe even baseball.  The beauty of a diversified portfolio!
