Nevada tries to ‘Kap-italize’ on famous alum
January 15, 2013
RENO, Nev. (AP) – Nevada athletic officials are trying to capitalize on “Kap” mania.
Ex-Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick has the San Francisco 49ers one win away from their first Super Bowl since 1995. And university officials are hoping the man who is fast becoming one of the school’s most famous alums will help them sell some football tickets next year.
They announced that anyone who purchases or renews at least two season tickets will be eligible to win up to four tickets and pregame field passes for the 49ers’ 2013 season opener.
Kaepernick passed for 262 yards and ran for an NFL playoff-record 181 in Saturday’s win over Green Bay.
While at Nevada, he became the only player in NCAA history with three seasons of 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing.
