ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - With 3,500 tickets remaining for this Saturday's epic showdown between UCF (5-2, 3-0) and East Carolina (5-2, 4-0), in an effort to fill Bright House Networks Stadium, UCF Athletics has unveiled the "Pirates Shipwreck Raffle".
Beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, with every ticket sold of the remaining 3,500, $5 from that purchase will fund a drawing for one lucky contestant to receive the full bounty...that's a possibility of winning up to $17,500 if all 3,500 are sold. The amount of the prize will depend on the amount of the remaining 3,500 tickets sold.
