Football and academia were forever intertwined when Shakespeare wrote, “Shall I compare thee to a middle linebacker?” See the poetic beauty of a quarterback being sacked on a pivotal 4th and two with today’s Groupon, which gets you a ticket to a Kansas University football game at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence. Tickets will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis for the Tier 2 section of the stadium. Choose one of the following options:
- For $25, you get one ticket to the KU vs. New Mexico State game on September 25 at 6 p.m. (a $60 value).

Experience a Rock Chalk Saturday as the Kansas Jayhawks football squad enjoys its first season under new head coach Turner Gill. Stars on this year's roster include playmaking freshman quarterback Jordan Webb and speedy running back James Sims, who led the team to a major upset over the 15th-ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on September 11. Your ticket will get you a supreme view of the field as the Jayhawks take on the New Mexico State Aggies or butt heads with Big 12 rivals Colorado. When the Jayhawks are safely ahead, sing along to the ghostly chant of “Rock Chalk Jayhawk,” which awakens the fire-breathing jayhawk-monster from its slumber so that it may eat the opposing mascot.
A college-football Saturday in Lawrence extends past the usual football game, as football fanciers gather on Campanile Hill to tailgate, socialize about the upcoming game, or trade recipes for beer-battered lemon-meringue pie. Spend a Saturday away from the stress of tending to a wheat, pumpernickel, or rye farm and celebrate the pure power of college football with today's Groupon.
