Sponsor will use reasonable efforts to select an alternate Winner but in the event one cannot be reasonably determined, such prize will not be awarded.
The Winner and his/her guest (if any) must complete an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release. Failure by the Winner to return these documents for him/her and his/her guest initially via e-mail, as an attachment, and then via regular U.S. Mail, within three (3) days from the date of receipt of the form may result in forfeiture of the prize and an alternate Winner may thereafter be selected.

Each of the Winners will receive two (2) general entry tickets to the college football rivalry game which they voted for, as specified on their entry.
