If you are looking for a ticket to this Saturday's college football game between the Tennessee Volunteers and Florida Gators then you are in major luck!
However, the price of admission may come at a cost, just not monetary.
A Florida man posted a listing on Craigslist offering a free ticket to the rivalry game in exchange for the recipient to take his step-daughter on a date beforehand. Yes, you read that right.
From the listing:
My step-daughter's date backed out (his loss, your gain) for the game...
1 Free ticket for the Tennessee-Florida Football game this Saturday (cost to me, $150) on the 40 for the right gentleman. You must be an attractive, professional, single well educated gentleman, with a good sense of humor, 25-33. You also must not be threatened by an attractive, professional, single well educated lady, (as she is). If you do not qualify, please pass this ad to a friend.
The fine print: I lied! (Sorry...not totally free). Your cost will be a modest dinner, drinks and delightful conversation with her before or after the game.
Hey, I can think of several worse ways to score a free ticket to a major college football game besides wining and dining a beautiful young lady.
And who knows? Perhaps the encounter could lead to a long relationship and wouldn't that be a great story to tell at the wedding?
Interested candidates should submit their request soon, though. The deadline to apply is midnight on Wednesday with the winner to be announced on Thursday.

Gary Yates, a lifelong Tennessee Volunteers fan living in Denver, purchased four tickets to Saturday's SEC tilt between the Vols and the Florida Gators. After his 27 year-old stepdaughter, Jessica Flanagan, had her date for the game bail on her, Yates was left with an extra $150 ticket on his hands.
Most in Yates' situation would probably just try to resell the spare ticket...
I hope I’m wrong, but Saturday will likely end with Tennessee’s ninth straight loss to the Florida Gators. The Vols are just too young and Florida’s got too strong a defense. However, Coach Butch Jones is doing good things and I think they’ll be climbing the mountain again soon. And when the Vols do make it back, their fans need to look to Gainesville to remind ourselves...

Top ten moments from one of college football's best rivalries: Florida Gators versus Tennessee Volunteers.
Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley says he sometimes sings along to ''Rocky Top'' while hearing it over and over again whenever the Gators face Tennessee.
''Something gets so annoying, you got to make the best out of it,'' Easley said.
Lately, that's about the only way Tennessee has been able to bother Florida.
Florida has beaten Tennessee...

Florida head coach Will Muschamp is challenging his team to avoid the history. The Gators are riding an eight-game wining streak against Tennessee, and the Volunteers head to Gainesville this weekend off a 45-point thumping from Oregon. Tennessee still provides a challenge for a Florida team that hasn’t been able to take advantage of its opportunities on offense.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones demand that his players "snap and clear" forget the last play and focus on the next one was easily accomplished in Game 3 at Oregon.
"You really didn't have too much time (between snaps) to even think," senior defensive lineman Daniel Hood said dryly, so you were pretty clear-minded the whole...
Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post leaked this photo of the rules of the road for the Toledo Rocket football team. Toledo opened their season with a 26-3 loss to the Florida Gators but that probably didn’t have anything to do with their hotel behavior (unless this is new). These seem pretty strict but I guess you wouldn’t want a whole football team ordering movies or room...

Jon Halapio isn’t used to the sidelines. The redshirt senior has played in 41 games and started 33 during his first three years on the field for Florida. Sitting out the first two games of this season -- especially having to watch a loss -- because of a pectoral injury was tough. Halapio returned to practice last week and will be back with the Florida offensive line on Saturday...
