West Virginia president left two tickets to Liberty Bowl for Elvis

Monday December 29th, 2014

West Virginia is taking on Texas A&M in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis on Monday and WVU president Gordon Gee is prepared to host a very special local luminary for the game.

Gee left two tickets for the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley, should he be interested in catching a football game.

The will call envelope only says, "Elvis," so anyone with that first name could grab them, like Olympic figure skater Elvis Stojko or maybe former NFL quarterback Elvis Grbac. Presley is unlikely to mind if someone else snags the tickets, as he had been dead since 1977.
