Michigan pulls Coca-Cola-free-tix deal for game vs. Minnesota

Tuesday September 23rd, 2014

Michigan's Athletic Department said Monday that a deal offering two free tickets to Tuesday's game vs. Minnesota with the purchase of two Coca-Cola products was made without approval and is being pulled immediately, according to a tweet from Michigan beat writer Nick Baumgardner of MLive Media Group. 

The bargain had made its rounds on social media earlier in the day but apparently shouldn't have run at all prior to the Wolverines' game at home in Michigan Stadium on Tuesday. 

The stadium has been filled with 100,000+ for 254 consecutive games, so there's no telling how many angry fans there are at home right now with an abundance of Coke in their fridges.
