Straight Up: Predict Hawaii and UMass' Combined Rushing Yards to Win Virginia Tech Season Tickets

TKP is giving away one (1) set of 2017 season football tickets. Watch the Hokies play every game in Lane Stadium this year.

A single set of 2017 Virginia Tech football season tickets can be yours if you correctly predict how many total rushing yards Hawaii and UMass will combine for Saturday. To enter, leave your guess (educated or otherwise) in the comment section. Anyone can register and join TKP's community for free to enter.

Thank you for you support of The Key Play, and The Key Players Club. Please follow TKP on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

The rules are:

  • Must be over 18;
  • Price is Right rule is in effect, you need to be closest to Hawaii plus UMass' total rushing yards without going over;
  • Leave your guess in the comment section below in the following format: "[number] yards", e.g. 1,200 yards, 89 yards, or 450 yards.
  • Picks are first come, first serve. In other words, there'll be 0 or 1 winners. If you duplicate someone else's existing pick, you lose.
  • One entry per person;
  • Do not, for any reason, edit your comment/picks. The database stores both a comment created date and last edit date. If those two aren't equal, you're disqualified;
  • Picks must be in before 6:00 PM EDT on 8/26/17;
  • Total rushing yards will be sourced from cfbstats.com at the end of the game;
  • Much like with Powerball, you must claim your prize. If you are the winner, email sauces (at) thekeyplay [dot] com, and your claim will be verified. Claims submitted after 11:59 PM EDT on 8/29/17 will not be verified.

I was already totally psyched about this marquee matchup. Now I'm basically foaming at the mouth.

My prediction: 285 total rushing yards in the game.

Just my two cents: You should have made UVA season tickets the prize. That way you could have made a profit by giving them away for free.

If those are finger quotes, then your pick shouldn't count because you didn't really mean it.

Leonard. Duh.

I know not how to troll, I was being sincere. A full season of tickets is a heck of an incentive to join.

Yeah. Could really make it interesting and do this every year, and make it open only to new TKPC members.
