After a record-breaking crowd in last Saturday’s game against Army, Troy University Athletics is working to get a strong student section for this week’s game against ULM.
“The student section is always key for every single game but especially for this final home game of the season,” says Executive Associate Athletic Director Kyle George. “We get a chance to send our seniors off in style and this is our final regular season home football game. We got a chance potentially still host a Conference Championship game and that’s why having the students this Saturday is even more key than ever for us. We need to go out and beat ULM to hold serve essentially and continue to have a chance to host the Sun Belt Conference Championship game right here in Troy when it comes to that game December 3rd.”
One of the ways Athletics is trying to get students into the stands is through a cash giveaway that could have a lucky student winning up to $1000.
“We’re going to have some cash prizes,” says George. “First time we’ve ever done this. In the first quarter, one lucky student will win or have a chance to win $250. Then a second student in the second quarter will win $250 dollars. Third quarter one lucky student will have a chance to win $500 and in the fourth quarter the grand prize of $1000.”
