Iowa is paying tuition for five students who buy season football tickets

Wednesday July 30th, 2014

For the low, low price of $175, University of Iowa students can not only enjoy exciting Big Ten action, they'll also have a shot at winning two semesters worth of free tuition. 

The school has announced a promotion where five lucky students who purchase season tickets will win a year's worth of free tuition.

But wait, there's a catch. The winners will only receive two semesters worth of tuition at the in-state rate (about $8,000 total). It doesn't include room and board (estimated at $9,614) or books (estimated at $1,040). Oh, and business students pay more ($9,237), as well as engineering students ($8,293), nursing students ($10,389) and pharmacy students ($23,123).

Probably still worth enduring seven Big Ten football games, though.
