Two consolation prizes are a pair of tickets and parking to the 2010 CSU-Air Force contest in Colorado Springs, Colo., and a pair of tickets to the 2010 CSU-Wyoming game, with parking.

Students are encouraged to pick up their tickets early, as they are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Again, tickets will not be available on game day at Hughes Stadium.
