Luck be a lady tonight: ND fans score some hard sought tickets

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- It was a lucky day for one area woman.

On Thursday, the Meijer on Grape Road in Mishawaka held a Blue-Gold Day.

The team held a raffle for fans to win free tickets to this weekend's big match up against University of Michigan.

Eight pairs of tickets were raffled off.

And the final winner of the tickets, nearly gave up.

"We were walking out the door and the number that they called didn't show up, so they drew one more and that was me," said Jill Drews. "I'm just so excited go to a game."

Hundreds of people filled into the store for Blue-Gold Day.

Many lined up to get an autograph from former Irish quarterback and 1988 National Champion, Tony Rice.
