Nevada hopes QB will help ticket sales
RENO, NEV. (AP)
Nevada athletic officials are trying to capitalize on ''Kap'' mania.
Ex-Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick has the San Francisco 49ers
one win away from their first Super Bowl since 1995. And university
officials are hoping the man who is fast becoming one of the school's
most famous alums will help them sell some football tickets next year.
They announced that anyone who purchases or renews at least two season
tickets will be eligible to win up to four tickets and pregame field
passes for the 49ers' 2013 season opener.
Kaepernick passed for 262 yards and ran for an NFL playoff-record 181
in Saturday's win over Green Bay.
While at Nevada, he became the only player in NCAA history with three
seasons of 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing.
Forget Tebow, Kaepernicking Is Here
