DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - Want to go to a free college football game? You can on Saturday at Averett University.

The Averett Cougars will play their last game of the season against the Ferrum College Panthers.

Athletic Director for Averett, Meg Stevens, said this is the first time there has been free admission to an Averett game. She said its a way to give back to the community.

"Our town has really had a tough fall, especially with Tropical Storm Michael, we saw a lot of damage, we saw a lot of people not be able to have a lot of fun for a few weekends as they were cleaning up so we decided it was best for the community," said Meg Stevens.

If you would like to attend the game, Stevens said to simply show up and the gates will be open. She predicts the bleachers will fill up fast. The game starts at 2 PM.
