BOISE, Idaho ÔÇô If sending a lucky fan to the biggest game of the year is a disease, then the Idaho Lottery has definitely caught Fiesta Bowl Fever for the second time in three years. One lucky Boise State Broncos fan will be traveling in style to this year's 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl as the winner of the Idaho Lottery's Fiesta Bowl Fever II promotion.
This limited time promotion runs from today at noon through December 27, 2009 at 12:00 p.m. MT. Idaho Lottery players who enter two, non-winning $5 Idaho Lottery Scratch tickets through the Lottery's website (idaholottery.com) will be entered for the chance to see the Broncos play the Horned Frogs on January 4, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona. The drawing will be held on December 28, 2009 and the winner notified immediately.
"The Idaho Lottery has been a long time sponsor of Boise State athletics and is excited for their opportunity against Texas Christian University in Arizona," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "Tickets and travel to a game of this magnitude on short notice can be expensive. Our package offers fans the chance at a great opportunity to see the Broncos in one of the biggest games in the school's history."
The drawing for the grand prize will occur early on the morning of December 28, 2009. The winner and a guest will leave on January 2, 2010 for a three night, four day trip to Phoenix. Round-trip airfare is included, along with airport and game-day transportation. The winner will stay at the Frank-Lloyd Wright-inspired Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa, a four-star resort known as the Jewel of the Desert, receive tickets to the self-proclaimed World's Greatest pre-game tailgate party, and get two tickets to the big game.
"This package is the ultimate trip for any Bronco fan," added Anderson.
The Idaho Lottery first offered Fiesta Bowl Fever in 2006 for the Broncos last visit to Glendale for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma. Fiesta Bowl Fever was a huge success, garnering over 5,000 entries. This year's promotion begins on December 9, 2009 and entries will be accepted until 12:00 noon MT on December 27, 2009. The winner will be drawn on Monday, December 28, 2009. The winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize from Lottery officials before an alternate is chosen.
"The Fiesta Bowl game three years ago remains one of the greatest college football games ever played," said Anderson. "And with two highly ranked, undefeated teams in a historic BCS Bowl match-up, we wanted to provide Lottery players and Bronco fans the opportunity to get to Phoenix for the big game."
