The University of the Cumberlands could use some support when it travels to Georgetown College for their Mid-South Conference football showdown on Saturday.
And it's taking a unique approach to attract a crowd.
Cumberlands is offering to pay for gas and food for any of its students who make the 117-mile trip to Georgetown for the 1:30 p.m. game.
To receive their gifts, students must find Cumberlands staff member Brandon Hensley and present him with their school identification card. Hensley will be wearing a UC multimedia and athletic services maroon polo shirt and taking video footage throughout the game.
