ATHENS, Ga. —

Rose Bowl fever is sweeping across the UGA campus and Wednesday one quick-witted student scored free tickets to the game.

A time-honored tradition at the University of Georgia is to ring the Chapel Bell after a Bulldogs victory. On this day, it got junior Carter Glenn two seats.

"Unbelievable! I am so excited. Now I have to make my travel plans to get out there,” Glenn said.

Rose Bowl officials were on campus giving away tickets to the big game. It was a contest of sorts.They tweeted clues all morning long, like “Where does a UGA fan go after the Bulldogs win?”

"So for the final tweet today, we had a tweet saying where we were and to ring the Chapel Bell and yell 'Rose Bowl.' That's how the winner got it,” Rose Bowl spokesperson Karen Linhart said.

Carter is taking fellow student Jack Glenn with him to Pasadena. Jack happens to be his brother.

"Two months ago I told my dad if the team goes to the Rose Bowl, we gotta go, so it's pretty cool,” junior Jack Glenn said.

The Glenn brothers had a strategy to win the tickets: They split up.

"You know, North Campus is more scenic, so we'll stay around here. He took the South part.I took the North part and it just worked out,” Carter Glenn said.

Rose Bowl officials gave away another pair of tickets a few hours later. On Thursday, they’ll do the same thing at the University of Oklahoma.
